A winter weather system has the region locked in its crosshairs. Winter storm warnings and advisories are posted for the region, with snow, sleet, freeing rain and rain all in the mix through Wednesday evening. Here’s what to expect.
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.
The week began with sleet, freezing rain and snow around the D.C. area, resulting in school closings and delays as well as messy morning traffic on Monday. Tuesday will begin with more misery, but the worst of it will be confined to parts north and west of the District. Here’s what you need to know.
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.

Icy roads caused a plethora of traffic troubles throughout the D.C. area Friday morning, but relief is in sight. The Chain Bridge, which was mostly a sheet of ice earlier, has now reopened; other roads are beginning to clear up as well.
