    Storm Team4 Meteorologist Veronica Johnson has the forecast for Feb. 4, 2016. (Published Thursday, Feb. 4, 2016)

    Morning rush hour on Friday could be more unpleasant than usual.

    Rain and light snow showers are falling across the D.C. area, and the rain/snow mix is expected to continue through the morning commute. 

    A winter weather advisory will be in effect until 10 a.m. for Anne Arundel, Arlington, Calvert, Charles, Prince George's and St. Mary's counties and D.C., Falls Church and Alexandria.

    The inclement weather has prompted a few schools in Maryland to delay or close. Schools in Anne Arundel and St. Mary's counties are on a 2-hour delay while students in Calvert County are getting a day off. Click here for a full list. 

    Temperatures will be in the mid-30s Friday morning, so the snow isn't expected to accumulate. But that doesn't mean it won't have an adverse effect on travel. Drivers should be prepared for slippery roads or even some black ice. Leave yourself extra time to get to work Friday morning.

    An inch of snow or less could fall around Frederick and southeast of D.C., while further into southern Maryland, snow could be anywhere from a dusting to accumulations of up to three inches.

    D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser deployed 40 plows overnight to address the possible snow.
