Sloppy snow and rain mostly not sticking

By Jason Samenow

Only expecting slushy accumulation on grass, if that

Radar: Latest regional radar shows movement of precipitation over past three hours. Powered by HAMweather. Refresh page to update. Click here or on image to enlarge. Or see radar bigger on our Weather Wall.

Light snow, mixed rain and snow (in the District and south and east), and drizzle continue falling in the metro region. With temperatures mainly in the mid-30s, very little snow is sticking, except in grassy/shaded areas in the far north and west suburbs (upper Montgomery county and Loudoun county). Places where it's raining should see a transition to mostly snow after midnight. However, precipitation will generally be spotty and light, and temperatures will only fall another degree or two. So any snow accumulations by morning will be slushy. In the normally warmer locations (downtown, near the Potomac River), you may awake to a wet dusting or even bare ground. In the colder spots north and west of the beltway, a slushy inch or so is possible.

Refer to Ian's forecast for detailed information for tomorrow and beyond...

Adios, winter. It was fun while it lasted...

Precipitation is diminishing on radar. It won't be heavy enough to push temps down to the freezing mark. This storm is turning out to be a non-event. It's SnoBigDeal.

Bring on some sunshine, mild temperatures and cherry blossoms.

dcawx -- a-men! I'm so looking forward to the time in the hopefully not too distant future when I can open my windows and get some nice fresh air inside my house...

Yucky rain/snow mix at the 301 Bridge. Did Walter put away his dancing shoes?

Well, I didn't believe it at first, but, you have returned, O prodigal son! I've missed you so much, you wet, cold, always-irritatingly-on-the-cusp-of-snow-but-not-quite-there Washington winter. They said you had come back two weeks ago, but I wasn't quite sure until tonight. This is the Washington winter so dearly know and love. . . sigh.

Yup still mild here--and just wet with light rain--in Fredericksburg

Springtime = A headache a week, minimum. I like Springtime in general despite such, because the temperatures are mild, and the days longer, but Winter is still the best!
