Scoop on wind & winter weather advisories

By Jason Samenow

Radar & lightning: Latest D.C. area radar shows movement of precipitation and lightning strikes over past two hours. Refresh page to update. Click here or on image to enlarge. Or see radar bigger on our Weather Wall.

8:45 a.m. update: Winter weather advisory canceled. Snow showers have dissipated.

From 6:50 a.m. Late overnight, the National Weather Service issued two advisories for parts or all of the metro region:

The Winter Weather Advisory was issued for the District and Frederick, Montgomery, Prince George's and Anne Arundel county until 9 a.m. for snow showers that mainly impacted the region overnight. A few light snow showers linger in eastern Montgomery County but much of the activity has diminished. Still, many roads have slick conditions from around 0.5" of powdery snow that fell in spots and stuck to everything. Temperatures are only in the upper teens and low 20s so don't expect a lot of melting. A few more snow showers could develop but, again, we're not expecting a lot more.

The Wind Advisory was issued for the entire metro region and is in effect through 10 p.m. tonight. Sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph are likely today with gusts of up to 45-50 mph. These gusts could make for difficult driving for high profile vehicle and cause a few isolated power outages. But what will be apparent to everyone are the bitter wind chills, likely to hold in the single digits and teens.

So ... the wind advisory is through 10 tonight -- are we still expecting high winds through tomorrow? I'm moving, and really not looking forward to driving a 14' box truck in 30 or 40 mph winds. :(

Winds drop to 10-20 mph tomorrow, with some gusts to 25 or 30. Still windy but not as bad as today.

Thanks, Jason. I'll avoid the highway.
