Discussion

Snow broke out early today and quickly mixed with sleet and icing will be the main problem for the rest of the day. A combination of sleet and freezing rain will produce an icy buildup and travel conditions will be dangerous in many areas as temperatures remain at or below the freezing mark. This will turn out to be a rather long duration event with a wintry mix possible tonight and into the day on Friday at varying rates of intensity. Snow accumulations will be limited to a coating to a couple of inches in the DC metro region due to the quick mixing, but there will be higher amounts in the far northern and western suburbs – and all areas experience an icy buildup.
