Advisory: Wintry Mix Tonight to be Followed by Rain, Then Bitter Cold

Less than a week after a winter storm dumped about a foot of snow around Loudoun County, another storm system is taking aim at Northern Virginia.

According to a Winter Weather Advisory issued by the National Weather Service, Loudoun County is expected to get more rain than snow from the storm that is scheduled to arrive about 4 p.m. today (Jan. 17).

Snow acculumations of 1 to 2 inches are possible, and a wintry mix is expected to cause problems for the evening commute. The heaviest snow accumulations are expected north and west of Washington, D.C.

“The hazardous conditions could impact the evening commute, especially after sunset as temperatures fall below freezing,” the adivsory warns. “Plan on slippery road conditions and sidewalks.”

For the latest road conditions, call 5-1-1.

After cloudy skies and temperatures reaching into the 40s on Friday, more rain is supposed to move into Loudoun County Saturday afternoon and into Sunday morning, followed by a wave of bitter cold Sunday and Monday. Temperatures are expected to hit single digits Sunday, with the high temperature of 17 predicted for Monday.
