Freezing rain makes for slick Tuesday morning commute in DC area


Freezing rain and sleet coated area roads with ice Tuesday morning, but will be followed by rain in the afternoon as temperatures pick up.

But the upward temperature trend won’t last.

Here’s what you need to know.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for parts of the region through Tuesday morning. These regions include:

Parts of Loudoun and Fauquier counties in Virginia until 7 a.m.
Parts of Montgomery, Howard, Harford and Frederick counties in Maryland until 10 a.m.
D.C.; parts of Prince George’s and Anne Arundel counties in Maryland; and Fairfax and Arlington counties and the City of Alexandria in Virginia until 9 a.m.

Parts of the northern suburbs saw light freezing rain and sleet overnight, while those in the south mostly received some light rain and drizzle.

I saw plenty of ice last night. I'm sure it only got worse overnight.
