Watch for a potentially wet evening commute

Worried about forecasts predicting snow that could complicate the Thursday evening commute? You can relax, according to the Capital Weather Gang. Less than an inch is expected around D.C., and the winter weather advisory for most of the Washington region has been discontinued.

But even though snow probably won’t lead to commuting problems, the weather could have an impact on your trip home. Precipitation in the form of rain and sleet is expected throughout the area, with some modest snow accumulations expected south of the District, Jason Samenow reports.

That could lead to slick spots developing during and after the evening rush hour. While these spots are most likely south and southwest of D.C., all travelers should use caution when heading out. Be mindful of potentially wet roads, slippery sidewalks and soaked train station platforms.

Update: Samenow chimes in to say there could still be snowflakes, with some readers reporting them in Centreville and Chantilly. Follow @capitalweather on Twitter for the latest.
