The major storm meteorologists have been tracking the past couple of days has taken a right turn, but snow remains in the area.

That means it is taking the moisture to the east.  The band of showers, sleet and snow began to fall apart in the overnight hours, so any snow accumulation around D.C. Tuesday will be very light, maybe enough to whiten the ground, according to meteorologist Bob Ryan.

Roads are still warm, so no morning travel troubles are expected around D.C., but the high spots well north and west have seen some snow with up to 3"-5" in the mountains of western Virginia and West Virginia.

As very cold air swings in Tuesday afternoon, we will probably still see some snow flurries or snow showers into Wednesday and overnight some slippery spots could develop, but there will be no big storm, Ryan said.

A winter weather advisory was issued for parts of Virginia and Maryland. The advisory is for an imminent threat of 1 to 2 inches of snow, which could cause travel difficulties.
