Mix of Rain and Snow for DC Region Tuesday

A weak, fast-moving storm will affect Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia Tuesday with rain and snow.

Mostly rain will fall over the Washington Metro area and areas to the south and east. However, as we often see with winter-style storms, lower temperatures will lead to progressively more snow and accumulation as you head north and west of the city.

No accumulation is forecast in Washington, D.C., but up to 3 inches or so of snow will fall over northwestern Virginia and north-central Maryland.

The storm with its snow, rain and wintry mix will begin during the wee hours of the morning.

Road surface conditions in metro Washington will be wet. However, commuters in the distant northern and western suburbs along Interstates 66, 70 and 83 can encounter slippery and slushy conditions during part of their journey during the morning and midday. This is especially true on the secondary roads that feed into them.

The storm will end from west to east during the afternoon and early evening hours.

Untreated wet areas can freeze during the evening and overnight Tuesday, especially outside of the city and on elevated surfaces, as there will not be much wind to dry surfaces off very quickly.

The balance of the week will be free of storms and precipitation.
