Winter Storm Warning through 12 p.m. tomorrow for Loudoun and Montgomery counties and N & W

Winter Weather Advisory through 12 p.m. tomorrow for the rest of the metro area

Slightly ahead of schedule, light to moderate snow has rapidly spread across the metro area. In most places, the ground is already white and an inch may accumulate by mid-to-late morning.

Some of the steadiest and heaviest precipitation may actually fall just south of the District. Two or three inches is certainly possible by early evening throughout the area. Sleet may start mixing in with the snow at that time especially from the District and points south and east. If sleet does not mix in with the snow until later, snowfall totals will have to be adjusted upward. We'll keep you posted.
