Rain and a wintry mix, possibly of freezing rain, will move into the area during the midday and afternoon hours on Monday and continue into the night. Some ice and snow are possible north and west of Washington, with some minor snow accumulations possible around the Maryland-Pennsylvania border and around the Interstate 81 corridor.
There could also be some ice accumulation, which is more treacherous.
