Capital Weather Gang: Rain through mid-morning

The Capital Weather Gang’s latest forecast is up. Here’s what they warn to expect on Monday:

Rain (in the city and east) and pockets of freezing rain (diminishing in coverage with time, mainly west of I-95) end by mid-morning. But clouds linger and while everyone rises above freezing, it’s not by a lot.  Melting is gradual, with highs in the mid-to-upper 30s (coldest in western areas).

And there’s also a reasonable chance for sleet and snow tomorrow, so be prepared for another bout of wintry weather on Tuesday.

MARC, VRE running full service

Virginia Railway Express trains and the Maryland Transit Administration’s MARC service will both run full service today, according to those agencies.

MARC trains were experiencing some early issues due to mechanical problems, with trains 505 and 892 already canceled due to these problems. But all three lines are expected to operate today.

Light freezing rain lingers

Here’s Capital Weather Gang’s Jason Samenow with the latest on the freezing rain and what to expect in terms of ice:

The steadiest precipitation has now shifted east of I-95, but patchy light rain/drizzle and light freezing rain/drizzle linger. Temperatures are still hovering near or just below freezing west of I-95 and right at or just above freezing east of I-95. In some areas (mainly in our Virginia suburbs), ice build-up over night was considerable, and the number of power outages has increased (roughly 32K in Va., 8K in Md., and 2.6K in D.C.), but is not overwhelming.

As we go through the morning, we should continue to see a reduction in the coverage and intensity of precipitation and I don’t expect much additional ice build-up. Temperatures will slowly rise above freezing west of I-95, taking until mid-to-late morning in the some of the colder areas. Be extremely cautious, especially on sidewalks and untreated roads which are likely very slick.
