Freezing Rain Advisory North, West of D.C.

The National Weather Service issued a freezing rain advisory for Saturday morning for areas north and west of D.C.

A storm system will move into the area by about midnight, NBC Washington meteorologist Doug Kammerer said, bringing with it a potential for freezing rain in areas where the temperature drops below freezing. Montgomery County, Md., could get a tenth of an inch of ice.

The advisory begins at 1 a.m. and expires at 6 a.m. for most of the advised area, but it will continue until 10 a.m. further north.

Once the temperatures rise back above freezing, any freezing rain will turn back to rain. Expect light rain and possibly steady rain during the day Saturday -- a quarter inch at most.

Another system could move into the area late Monday and bring more snow on Tuesday.
