Light Snow Develops Over Parts of Area
UPDATE 9:30 a.m.: Snow has mostly ended except south and east of town. But note this statement from the National Weather Service:
SNOW IS EXPECTED TO TAPER OFF GRADUALLY THIS MORNING. ALTHOUGH ROADS ARE NOT SNOW-COVERED...AS THE SNOW DISSIPATES...REFREEZE OF WATER ON ROADS WILL RESULT IN SLICK CONDITIONS. NUMEROUS ACCIDENTS HAVE BEEN REPORTED THIS MORNING AS A RESULT.
MOTORISTS ARE URGED TO DRIVE VERY CAUTIOUSLY...AND ALLOW EXTRA TIME TO REACH THEIR DESTINATIONS.
From earlier (7:30 AM): An area of light to occasionally moderate snow has broken out this morning over the metro area. A dusting to an inch of snow is possible inside the Beltway - with the heaviest amounts to the east and northeast of the District (1-2") -- and the lightest amounts southwest (a dusting or less). Temperatures are well below freezing, and where the snow is falling, it is sticking.
The snow should gradually taper off from northwest to southeast by mid-morning although some more flurries or snow showers can't be ruled out during the day.
Drive carefully, since the salt trucks may not be out just yet!
