Winter Weather Advisory for Frederick, Clarke, and northern parts of Fauquier, Loudoun, Montgomery and Howard counties this afternoon until midnight.
We start off the weekend with a cold start and sunshine. By this afternoon, a wintry mix arrives. This will be a tricky forecast to nail down snow totals as there will be a mix to rain for some areas. However, the best chance for accumulating snow looks to be NW of the metro. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Frederick, Clarke, and northern parts of Fauquier, Loudoun, Montgomery and Howard counties this afternoon until midnight. The best time frame for snow in these areas should be from 4-7 PM with up to 2.0” possible. Some areas closer to the Mason Dixon line could see higher amounts. Be mindful if traveling and watch for slick spots. Major highways should mainly be wet. The metro and points south will start with snow/sleet and then change over to rain. A trace to 2.0” of snow is possible from Gaithersburg, D.C. to Culpeper. Isolated slick spots are possible. The storm is fast moving, therefore the wintry mix tapers off around midnight. Remember to download our StormWatch7 app to track the rain/snow today.
Mostly sunny skies return Sunday with highs back in the 50s. Another warm up moves in for the middle half of the week. Daytime highs Tuesday and Wednesday could reach 20-25 degrees above average. A cold front arrives Thursday and increases shower chances.
