Sun is back, as are drier conditions. The main thing missing is warmer temperatures.

Some refreeze and slick spots are possible, especially north and west. It remains gusty into Friday as this nor'easter pulls away.

Some delays are reasonably likely in the region's northern and western areas that got walloped by snow.

Cold, soaking rain followed one to two inches of snow, the most in November since 1989.

A supersized snow band is set to move through the region.

The first snow is always special.

A fire official said Paradise, Calif., resembled “Armageddon." A resident said the devastation “looked like Iraq.”

A coating or more of snow and sleet is possible in our colder areas, as well as a glaze of freezing rain.

It won't get ugly until near sunrise. Then it could be pretty ugly.

Delays or cancellations are likely in our far-western and northern counties, with decreasing odds as you head to the southeast.

The calendar might say November, but the weather-map thinks its winter.

We explain snow, sleet, freezing rain and how they are alike and different.

A mix of sleet, snow, and freezing rain is likely early Thursday. Seriously.

We're mostly in the calm before the (next) storm through tomorrow.

A close inspection of the video shows it might have been something more like a landspout.

Measurable snow hasn't fallen in November in more than two decades.

Snow and ice will last longer north and west of the Beltway, and could cause delays and cancellations.

The Capital Weather Gang is forecasting 16 to 24 inches of snow inside the Beltway and for a notably cold second half of winter.

Early commuters could run into the tail end of the overnight rain, but it tapers down quickly and should be over by the time most people get on the road.

Meteorologists at NBC4, FOX 5, ABC7 and WUSA9 all predict a snowy winter in Washington.

An inch of rain or so may fall overnight.
