For the third time in the past week, the Washington area is on edge!  After enduring wintry weather both last Sunday and Tuesday, yet another bout is occurring today.  But just as the edge of the rain/snow line fluctuated earlier this week, so too is it doing today.  While snow fell this morning in counties to the north and west, including the farther reaches of Loudoun, Montgomery, and Howard, it has been mostly dry in DC and areas to the south and east of the city.  Conditions become more problematic as you travel north and west.   In those areas, like Frederick and Washington counties,  a Winter Storm Warning is in effect.  In Frederick city and Hagerstown, for example, multiple inches of snow could fall.

NOTE: The earlier Winter Weather Advisory has been cancelled for Montgomery and Howard counties.  The remaining Advisory areas and Winter Storm Warnings areas to the far north and west remain in effect until 1 AM Sunday.

After a rainy night, skies are expected to turn partly sunny on Sunday with a high near 40.  A return to high pressure will bring mostly sunny days for the middle of next week , but temperatures will be cold with daytime highs in the 30s.  Milder air arrives by late in the week with readings in the 50s by next Friday!
