FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY in effect from until 10am for up to 1/10th inch of ice accumulation in spots across the metro region from DC south.

It appears D.C. is on the fringe of the latest winter storm. While there were a few snowflakes at the onset the big story this morning is freezing rain…ice. The farther north and west you are from the more disruptive the ice will be. I’ve seen reports of a few hundredths of an inch of ice across the immediate metro, with two tenths being reported in Purcellville and up to six tenths out in Frostburg. Locally as warmer air is introduced through the morning we should quickly change over to rain and then do so progressively from the city to the north and west. Skies will become partly sunny by the afternoon with mild temperatures near 50 degrees. Thursday and Friday look mostly sunny to partly cloudy and cold with temperatures back in the upper 30s. Another chance for rain and snow exists this weekend as an area of low pressure moves back into the region by Sunday. Have a great day!
