Rain, snow or a mix of both may come into WTOP listening area late Friday night into Saturday morning. But there’s good news for Washingtonians: Forecast guidance has shifted faster and further to the south, leaving anything measurable well to the south of the D.C. area.
This morning brings with it the same wintry mix and icy conditions as Monday, though this time around it’s expected to give way to heavy rains later in the day.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for D.C. and parts of Maryland and Virginia from 7 p.m. Sunday to 10 a.m. Monday, with areas to the north and west of the capital most at risk for snarled rush hour traffic from icy conditions.
Brace yourselves, D.C. — winter is back. After a few days of unseasonably warm weather, cooler air moved into the area once again with a chance of snow on Sunday night into Monday afternoon.
The snow has stopped falling, leaving much of the area under at least an inch of the fluffy stuff, but freezing temperatures overnight will leave some roadways slick with ice.
The wind chill advisory from 9 p.m. Wednesday to 10 a.m. Thursday follows a snow squall and and “flash freeze” that complicated a wintry Wednesday afternoon around the D.C. area.
Snow interrupted the Tuesday evening commute, causing some schools to close early and slowing down traffic. See how much snow accumulated throughout the region.
It’s winter, all right: Another round of wintry weather is descending onto the D.C. area, with rain changing to snow and freezing temperatures following. Some schools have announced early closures, and government workers are getting out two hours early. But despite a lack of accumulation, Tuesday’s storm will still complicate the evening rush hour. Here’s what to know.

The advisory is in effect from 3 p.m. Tuesday to midnight, when snow is expected to follow rain during the late afternoon and early evening hours. Central and Northern Virginia, and southern and central Maryland are covered in this advisory.
Those ready for a break from the blast of winter weather this past week won’t see any relief over the weekend. Forecasts predict yet another round of snow headed to the D.C. area. To make matters worse, the National Weather Service has issued both a Winter Storm Warning and a Winter Weather Advisory for parts of the region Saturday and Sunday.
The Northeast is bracing for an intense winter storm right after parts of California have seen almost a foot of rain this week. Two storm systems have headed east.
The weather service has expanded a Winter Weather Advisory to include the entire D.C. area. Drivers should expect “slippery road conditions and sidewalks,” and the hazardous conditions may linger overnight, as temperatures fall below freezing. This could affect the Friday morning commute. Here’s what you need to know.
Roads and sidewalks may have refrozen overnight, but the Wednesday morning commute shouldn’t be as bad. As Maryland, Virginia and D.C. emerge from the first major snowstorm of the year, another round of wintry weather may be on the way. WTOP has the details. Here’s what you need to know.
