* Recommendations for winter time along and west of Highway 95 at 19:00. Sunday until 10:00 am Monday | Key moments
The snowflake line has risen north to Colombia, now and now (and must continue to migrate slowly to the north). Snow is now mostly limited and north of Interstate 70, with a winter mixture to the south.
For much of the Washington area, the snow of this event is over, and now we'll have a sweet and freezing rain for the rest of the night. Some of our softer spots, predominantly from the center of the southeast, can see rainfall in ordinary rain.
At night and in the morning traveling, we expect the most widespread slippery conditions in our colder areas to the west and northwest of the Beltway, but slick spots are still likely in the immediate metro area, account is taken of the temperature around freezing and washing of frozen rainfall. Our greatest concern is for pavements, alleys, parking lots and neighborhoods.
This is our last update tonight. Scroll down for tomorrow's forecast. Check out again at 5 am on Monday for our next detailed forecast update.
22:55 – The snow has changed to dry and freezing rain from the South
The snow has fallen severely for some time in the immediate subway area, but the snowline has risen to the north faster than predicted by the models), and many areas of the southern lane have now changed with dry rain. This means that the accumulation of snow may be over, but we will have to deal with a slippery layer of sweet / frozen rain at the top of the blinded snow cover that fell. Side roads and sidewalks will be the main areas of concern.
22:15 – The snow was going down hard and fast, developing some patches of stains. This allows the temperature to drop rapidly to near freezing, and the snow to cover lawns and even untreated sidewalks and neighborhoods. So far, the main roads are behaving well. Be careful if you are traveling.
Short range patterns and the radar suggest the snow should fall steadily for at least two to three hours, but probably not as strong as that breakthrough. However, some areas may see total values exceeding one inch entering the booming territory. At the same time, it is necessary to observe an area of snow and rain (with the exception of frozen rain where the temperatures are below 32) to the south, which should rise to the north with time and limit the amount of snow that can accumulate over the night 19659023] Here are some images …
21:30 – Sneg quickly prevails directly in the metro area
During the last 15 to 20 minutes, we received a large number of reports of snow development from the west . And it does not take long for the snow to start falling pretty fast.
We have received snow reports coming from Arlington, Burk, Alexandria, Vienna, Fairfax, Montgomery County and even South Maryland.
In the next hour, the snow should start falling even in our eastern regions.
Snow will first stick to mulch, tops of the car and grassy areas, and then pretty quickly can cover the rough paved surfaces. Therefore, use cautious walking and driving.
8:25 – The snow that unfolds in our most distant western regions
The radar shows snow development in the western part of our region from around Frederick and Lisbourg and west through the Interstate 81. We received reports for light snow in Winchester, as well as Culk Hill and Purcellville in the western Loudoun area.
This snow should begin spreading eastward in Montgomery, eastern Loudoun, and Fairfax districts over the next hour.
Detailed Forecast from 18:30
Things will get confused for the next 36 to 48 hours. The battle zone between hot and cold air will essentially divide the area of the DK, just as several rain cycles move. This means we are in the full range: snow, rain, ice and rain. Expect more than the first ones in the Sunday night hours, which, despite the lack of much accumulation, will continue to create slippery road conditions on Monday morning

Sunday Evening: It remains cloudy for the next few hours, before light rainfall, to start flashing between 8:00 and 11:00. Light snow is expected at the beginning of the rainfall, despite the extreme temperatures in the range of 32 to 36 degrees. The snow should pass to a fog / rain / rain mix somewhere after midnight, with locations from DC and south / southeast passing first, and the locations north / northwest hang on the light snow the longest.
The snow / ice / ice accumulations must be confined primarily to grassy surfaces around DC, as road temperatures should remain predominantly high enough to avoid significant accumulation. In our colder areas, rough roads and sidewalks have the best of slippery and icy, while pedestrians and motorists have to be careful. Lows will run on both sides at 32 degrees depending on the location, with light winds from the southeast.
