A massive system that dumped snow, ice, sleet and rain on much of the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and South is making its way northeast, and some areas will see some icing into the night.

This Afternoon: Rain Moderate at Times Sleet/Ice well west and north

Temperatures: 33-40 | Wind: NE-N 10-20

Overnight: Clearing and breezy late-icy areas

Lows: 30-35 | Wind: NW-W 10-20

Thursday: Sunny but Windy and Cold

Highs: 36-41 | Wind: NW 20-30 mph

The major winter storm is now in eastern Kentucky with a secondary storm starting to form in South Carolina.  Look at the extent of the storm.  


The storm gave us our first real taste of snow early this morning before temperatures rose above freezing in the metro are and now just a cold rain washing away the snow.  A different story well west and north of D.C., where sleet and snow continues especially western Maryland.  Look at Keyser's Ridge in western Maryland.  


The storm rapidly moves to our north this evening and then some cold winds come in for the next couple of days. 

It'll be just wet in the D.C. area later Wednesday night, but by late tonight some freezing and wet areas will sure be icy spots.
