Low pressure near the Carolinas will bring in a feed of moisture to the Mid-Atlantic today.  Temperatures are just cold enough that it will start as freezing rain/sleet/snow in spots, then change over to rain with pockets of freezing rain (ice).  The National Weather Service has most of the area under a Freezing Rain Advisory until 6p.m tonight for light ice accumulations on elevated surfaces. Bridges and Overpasses will get slick first.  The rain will be light today and much of it will taper off after midnight.  A few lingering areas of rain are possible tomorrow, but the temperatures will warm into the 40s, so no worries about icing.  Wednesday will feature a windy and wet day as a strong storm that started in the Pacific arrives on the east coast. It will be difficult for travelers especially at airport.  We dry up for Christmas Day, but it will remain breezy.  Temperatures will be well above average in the 50s and 60s Wednesday through the end of the week.
