Snow shower chance around a.m. commute

An energetic upper level disturbance trailing the cold front moving through this evening may spin up some snow showers late tonight into Monday morning.

The chance of snow showers is only 30-40% but should they develop, icy spots could form on roadways as temperature fall back to around 30 late tonight (upper 20s in the colder suburbs to 32 downtown) - mainly after 2 a.m.. If it's snowing when you awaken tomorrow morning, exercise caution on the roads. Locations that see snow could get a dusting.

Prior to midnight, temperatures should generally remain above freezing. So travel should not be hazardous on area roadways this evening. Mainly well north and west of the District, spotty showers could begin to mix with or change to snow starting around 10 p.m.

Refer to Brian's full forecast for the outlook for the next several days...
