    Winter just isn't letting go.

    Snow and rain fell across parts of the D.C. area after a mild Easter and Passover. Areas north and west of the District could see 1 to 3 inches of snow.

    Sunday's temperatures reached the mid 60s with cloudy skies most of the day. Overnight, temperatures will drop into the 30s and lower 40s.

    The rain moved into the region after midnight, and wet snow could affect the morning commute.

    A winter weather advisory is in effect for parts of Montgomery and Howard counties in Maryland and Loudoun and Clarke counties in Virginia until 11 a.m. Monday. 

    Winter weather advisories begin at midnight for Winchester and Frederick counties in Virginia and Carroll, Frederick and Washington counties in Maryland. Storm Team4 predicts those areas will see about 1 to 3 inches of snow.

    Not much snow accumulation is expected on the roads, but drivers should be prepared for wet conditions, Theodore said.

    You may see some snow and rain during the morning commute, but the flakes should quickly melt as temperatures reach the low 50s. Untreated roads north and west of D.C. may be slushy. By 10 a.m., the snow will likely be gone. Expect showers, clouds and fog through the afternoon.

    There will likely be no closures or delays for the D.C. metro area and counties south and east because those areas will see mostly rain, Theodore said.

    Near Cumberland, Maryland, residents are under a winter storm watch and could see more than 4 inches of snow.

    Showers are forecast to continue early in the week. Tuesday's high temperature is 61 degrees and Wednesday's high is 69 degrees.

    Worried about the cherry blossoms? The blooms will likely be fine, as temperatures will stay above freezing.
