While snow is the primary precipitation type we will see, areas south and east of DC may see a wintry mix of snow and rain or freezing rain. Thankfully, this system is moving quickly but it will impact the early morning commute.

Another upper level disturbance will approach the area early Wednesday with clouds and a few sprinkles. Clearing skies with milder temperatures will follow for Wednesday afternoon.
