The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for all of Northern Virginia from 10 p.m. Monday until 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Precipitation may begin as snow, but will probably end as a brief period of sleet and freezing rain.

NWS forecasts snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches, with little to no ice accumulations from freezing rain.

Original Story:

Just as Prince William County students return from an unplanned five-day weekend, the National Weather Service calls for snow, possibly mixed with freezing rain and sleet for Tuesday morning.

Despite temperatures expected to reach the 50’s Tuesday, low pressure approaching from the Great Lakes overnight will bring precipitation that could make the morning commute hazardous.

“Tuesday, snow is likely, possibly mixed with freezing rain and sleet before 7 a.m., then a chance of snow and freezing rain between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.,” the weather service forecasts.

Snow and sleet accumulations of less than a half-inch to an inch throughout the weather event is possible.

The NWS is watching another disturbance on Wednesday.
