A dusting of snow is possible south of the D.C. area early Monday — but if you love snow, don’t get your hopes up. The best chance of any snow will be in southern Maryland and from south of Fredericksburg, Virginia, down to the Richmond area.

Spotsylvania County Public Schools will operate on a two-hour delay for hybrid and distance learning Monday due to the chance of inclement weather, the school system said.

In the D.C. metro area, no accumulations are expected and travel will not be an issue.

One resident of Leesburg, Virginia, shared video on Twitter of falling snowflakes. "Just pretty to look at, no sticking," she noted.

Any chances of flurries chance will be over well before noon, and our skies will be clearing out as the day wears on.

A cold northwest wind will have us shivering Monday and again Tuesday. Afternoon highs will barely get above 40° Monday.

The D.C. Department of Human Services activated its hypothermia alert Sunday night. Anyone who sees someone in need of shelter should call the shelter hotline at 202-399-7093 or 311. Call 911 if there is an immediate risk to safety.
