A cold front will slowly drift and then stall just to south of the D.C. area overnight. Cold air will slowly filter in from the northwest as rain develops. Rain will change to snow overnight in Frederick and Washington counties and areas where a Winter Storm Warning has been posted. Advisories have been posted for Loudoun and Montgomery counties.

Areas inside the Beltway will see mainly rain, eventually mixing with sleet and wet snow; southern Maryland will see mainly a rain event. As a general rule, using D.C. as your center, the further north and west you go, the higher the likelihood for deteriorating road conditions during the Monday morning rush.

StormWatch 7's Alex Liggitt has a blog about the upcoming storm here.

Rain and snow will come to and end during the afternoon hours as an area of high pressure briefly builds. Skies will gradually clear Monday night ahead of our next weather maker late Tuesday.
