Monday's weather: 'A three-pronged attack'

Storm Watch 7 meteorologists say the area is in for “a three-pronged attack” over the next 24 hours: a storm coming from the west; cold air from the north; and a coastal storm. A mix of rain and snow is falling on the D.C. area, which could mean problems for the afternoon commute as temperatures continue to drop.
