A wintry mix of weather is heading to the Mid-Atlantic tomorrow. Snow, sleet and freezing rain are all likely creating slick roads and sidewalks, especially in the afternoon. The day will start with mainly snow. I think the best chance of it will be in Northern Maryland. Around an inch is expected. While snow is possible in the DC metro, I think it is more likely to see the mix around midday. Here are a few key points.
- Sunday's Impact
The worst of conditions will likely be in the afternoon. Temperatures will warm up in the evening and it should change over to rain. Overnight will dry up with temperatures rising above freezing in most areas. At this time, i expect the Monday morning commute to be OK. It s possible we will need to make adjustments to this tricky forecast. Another round of wintry weather arrives late on Tuesday. This storm tracks to our West and pulls in much warmer temperatures with it. Rain by Wednesday with highs around 60 degrees!!! But, it doesn't last long as we cool down right behind it into the upper 30s and low 40s. Winter not going away any time soon!
