      WINTER STORM WARNING western counties tonight through Tuesday morning

      WINTER STORM WATCH Counties immediately west of D.C. tonight through Tuesday morning

      SUNDAY AFTERNOON:
      Increasing Clouds | Not as Windy | Still Very Cold
      Highs: 22-28
      Feels Like Temperatures: 14 - 23
      Winds: Northwest to Southeast 5-10 mph

      SUNDAY NIGHT:
      Mostly Cloudy | Snow Showers Develop
      Lows: 13-20
      Winds: Southeast 5-10 mph

      MONDAY:
      Morning and Midday Snow | Afternoon Snow, Sleet, & Freezing Rain
      High: 30
      Winds: Southeast 5-10 mph


      After a brutally cold morning, we're doing a little better this afternoon, but not by much! For many of us, wind chills remain in the single digits. Winds are lighter, so it won't feel as cold today, but highs are only in the mid 20s and that is still very cold for the time of the year (our average high is now up to 47).


      A Winter Storm Warning is in place for counties along Rt 15 and west including western Fauquier, western Loudon, and Frederick Counties In these places there is the potential for the potential for over 5" of snow and sleet (most see 1-3") and a quarter inch of ice. Snow will develop overnight into early Monday morning. Light snow is expected to fall through the day until it mixes with and transitions first to sleet (ice pellets), then to freezing rain (rain that freezes on contact to a sheet of ice), and finally to just rain. A Winter Storm Watch continues for counties immediately west of D.C.


      The transition doesn't happen until sometime Monday afternoon, then the transition to just rain doesn't appear to occur until around midnight. This means that the roads could be very messy for the majority of our Monday. What remains heading into Tuesday? Closer to the Metro, I think the rain will take over and roads will likely be just wet. Farther west and north, where the cold air hangs on a bit longer, I think we could still have some slick and icy areas early in the morning. Right now, we're forecast a general 1"-3" of snow before the transition Monday night across the immediate D.C. metro with higher totals to the mountains farther west possibly upwards of 3"-6"+.


      Stay warm on your Valentine's Day and have a great holiday weekend too! More mild air takes over for the end of the week and into next weekend!
