Ice has been a major issue mainly north and west of the beltway.  A freezing rain advisory expires at Noon for Loudon, Montgomery and Howard Counties.  The Warning in pink expires by 1p.m.




The freezing rain/ice accumulated as predicted with heaviest amounts North and no more than a trace in D.C where temperatures stayed near 34 degrees much of the morning.


Preliminary Ice Accumulations


The precipitation has become more intermittent and not as widespread.  A cold front will pass and skies gradually clearing this afternoon.  Temperatures will greatly vary today with highs near 50 south of D.C. and only in the upper 30s near the Mason Dixon Line.  This is our second storm of the week and we have one more to go.  The good news is that tomorrow and Friday look quiet.  The winter storm possibility for the weekend is still uncertain.  However, model have been trending towards a system that is not as strong as some may have been telling you and it looks more like Saturday night into Sunday.  Once we get through today's ice and clearing, the models will be able to initiate better and we'll get a better idea of what to expect.
