Morning Commute Should Mainly Be Wet, Not Icy
Expect most schools to open on time
Winter Weather Advisory N&W of D.C. through 11 a.m. Wed. morning (includes Montgomery, Loudoun & Frederick counties)
* What about the rest of the week? Forecast *
Light rain, mixed with sleet in a few spots, continues this evening. Inside the beltway and to the south and east, temperatures are mainly in the mid-30s, although pockets of near-freezing temperatures exist. To the north and west (in Loudoun and northern Montgomery county), temperatures are generally around freezing, with some scattered reports of a little iciness -- primarily on car tops, tree limbs and untreated road surfaces.
For the next 3-6 hours, what you see now is what you'll get with temperatures by-and-large holding steady. Precipitation will probably decrease in coverage and intensity in the early morning hours. Isolated iciness can't be ruled out in the far north and west suburbs for the morning commute, but widespread problems aren't expected with temperatures rising above freezing even in the cold spots by early to mid morning.
For Loudoun and Frederick Counties and north and west:
