Light Ice Glazing Region, Ending This Morning

By Jason Samenow

Winter Weather Advisory through noon.

* Coming mid-morning (9 a.m.): Full Forecast through Christmas eve *

Pockets of freezing rain continue to cause icy conditions early this morning. Temperatures are at or below freezing in most locations. The precipitation will likely end over the next several hours (by 9 or 10 a.m.) from southwest to northeast.

If you're headed out this morning, watch out for a light glaze of ice when walking and/or driving. The most treacherous surfaces will be those that are untreated and/or elevated. Be particularly careful driving on ramps, bridges, and overpasses.

Last night on I-66 I experienced a couple of snow pellet showers. How exciting!

I don't think I've ever been so excited about glaze ice. But for now, I'll take whatever winter weather I can get!

Roads and sidewalks in NW DC are mostly ice-free, but trees and cars still have a thin, sparkling coating on them.
