Update: Spotty Snow Now, Patchy Ice Later

By Capital Weather Gang

*Winter Weather Advisory north of D.C. from noon to 10 p.m. today*

*Vote early (but just once), especially in northern suburbs*

Despite some intermittent light snow and flurries this morning, weather-related problems have been minimal in the metro area. At 11 a.m., temperatures ranged from the low to mid 20s in the north and west suburbs to the upper 20s in the District. Radar shows some light snow mainly north of the District; Baltimore reported snow at 11 a.m. South and southwest of DC, not much of anything is happening at the moment.

Other than light snow and flurries north of DC (mostly in Maryland towards Frederick and north of Baltimore, where a light accumulation is possible), the weather should be pretty quiet for the next several hours in the immediate metro area. By mid afternoon, a very light mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain could develop in the southern suburbs. This precipitation should move into the rest of the area by late afternoon and evening hours. At that time, temperatures should be at or above freezing inside the beltway -- so major travel issues are not anticipated. However, north and west of central Fairfax and central Montgomery counties, below freezing temperatures may cause some slick spots particularly on bridges, overpasses, ramps and sidewalks.

For the detailed forecast for today through President's day, see Matt's post.
