Higher elevations west and north of Washington are dealing with a legitmate spring snowstorm.The steady snow wil taper to pockets of snow aound mid-day. Only minor, additional accumulations are expected for the Washington Metro Area. Clearing skies and colder temperatures tonight may set the stage for numerous slick spots and icy patches. Be careful!
