Alert: Rain Arrives Ahead of Schedule
Pockets of freezing rain to the north
A batch of steady rain has developed in the metro area this morning and will continue for the next several hours. In some spots, temperatures are cold enough that the rain is freezing on contact with the surface. This prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Freezing Rain Advisory for areas north and northwest of DC (including Frederick, Anne Arundel and Carrol counties and Baltimore) until 10am:
A FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY MEANS THAT PERIODS OF FREEZING RAIN OR FREEZING DRIZZLE WILL CAUSE TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR SLIPPERY ROADS. SLOW DOWN AND USE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING.
Areas near freezing now will rise above freezing by mid morning, around the time the rain will temporarily end. By afternoon, most areas will be well into the 40s heading towards 50 -- with more showers possible towards evening.
