As most of you know, there’s a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for Northwest MoCo starting at midnight tonight. Up to two inches of snow is expected along with a light glaze of ice.
For the rest of MoCo, there’s a special weather statement that includes the “potential for hazardous commuting conditions for the Monday morning commute. A period of snow and sleet is possible Monday morning, mainly after 4 AM. Up to an inch of of snow is possible through Monday morning.”
The National Weather Service currently has half of MoCo in the 1-2 inch range with very light ice accumulation expected before everything turns to rain.
As you can see in the image from Fox5, temps in Gaithersburg are expected to hit the freezing mark, which means areas like Germantown, Clarksburg, Damascus, etc. should also be there overnight.
If the higher side of projections fall, we could see some slick spots tomorrow morning, especially in areas north and west.
