*Winter Weather Advisory for northwest Montgomery, northern Howard and western Loudoun counties from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday*

The end of what has been an active storm period is upon us. A relatively fast-moving frontal system will bring a brief period of mixed precipitation Monday morning before quickly changing to plain rain by the afternoon. A few slick spots are possible toward the end of rush hour, especially the farther north and west one gets from D.C. Once this system clears the area by afternoon, temperatures will be on an upward trend, with a taste of spring to come by midweek.

Frozen precipitation will hang on a bit longer in elevated areas to the north and west, where slippery spots are most likely to develop. Drying out by the late afternoon, with highs from 38 to 42 degrees. Partly cloudy and seasonably cold in the evening, with lows right around 32 degrees.
