After frigid wind chills over the weekend, the D.C. area is bracing for wintry weather, including snow, freezing rain and ice.
A wintry mix is set to push into the D.C. area around lunchtime Monday and continue for about 24 hours, Storm Team4 says.
Sunday is looking nicer than Saturday was, with lighter wind and temperatures around 40°.
A wintry mix could also cause treacherous travel between early Monday afternoon and Tuesday around lunchtime, Storm Team4's Lauryn Ricketts says. Freezing rain could lead to a glazing of ice on untreated roads. Storm Team4 expects to declare a weather alert.
“We’re going to have a mix of everything: snow, rain, sleet, rain and freezing rain. We could even have some snow accumulation,” Ricketts said.
Currently, a wintry mix of snow and rain looks possible around the Beltway on Monday night. Some snow and ice accumulation are possible, even more so north of D.C. and west of Interstate 95.
Southern Maryland is likely to get only rain and no snow.
The type of precipitation your neighborhood gets depends on the temperatures — and one or two degrees could make the difference.
By lunchtime Tuesday, the wintry mix is expected to be out, then rain will taper off through the afternoon.
The forecast is still evolving, so stay with Storm Team4 this weekend for the latest.
