    Storm Team4 Meteorologist Somara Thodore has the forecast for March 3, 2019. (Published Sunday, March 3, 2019)

    A winter storm brought snow, sleet and rain to the region and could mean icy roads in the morning as the temperature drops below freezing.

    The biggest impacts of the storm system are north and west of D.C., where the storm brought snow. Areas south and east of D.C. are seeing rain. Other locations got a mix of snow and rain with some sleet.

    A winter storm warning is in effect for parts of Frederick, Carroll and Washington counties in Maryland, through early Monday morning.

    Snow started falling in Winchester, Virginia, and parts of the Shenandoah Valley early Sunday morning.

    By about 1:30 p.m., snow had started to mix in with rain in Bethesda, Maryland.

    A winter weather advisory has been issued for parts of Fauquier and Loudoun counties in Virginia and Montgomery County, Maryland. You can check all weather alerts here. Southern Montgomery and southern Loudoun counties have been taken off the advisory.

    Areas north and west of D.C. could see as much as 4 inches of snow, especially in portions of central Maryland. That estimate is lower than before because the temperature stayed above 40 degrees for most of the day and snow wasn't sticking, but with the sun down and the temperature dropping, areas that are getting snow could see it intensify.

    The precipitation will scoot out of the region overnight and should be gone by the Monday morning commute. There will be icy spots across the region overnight, especially on bridges, ramps and overpasses.

    Temperatures overnight for most locations will fall below freezing. Monday will be dry and sunny but blustery.

    Winds will gust up to 25 to 30 mph at times through the day on Monday, which will help dry out roads for the evening commute.

    High temperatures next week will be in the 30s. A chance of rain and snow is set to return Friday into next weekend.
