Messy Sunday: Winter Weather Advisory in effect, could affect road conditions

- A messy Sunday is on tap if you're planning to be out on the roads. A Winter Weather Advisory issued for much of the D.C. area has been extended with a wintry mix expected through the afternoon. 

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory on Saturday for parts of the area between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m., but on Sunday that advisory was shifted to begin at 10 a.m. and runs through the evening. It also now extends further east to the bay.

The FOX 5 Weather team said the precipitation would start as a mix or freezing rain around D.C., but should change over to rain by late day. Those north and west of D.C. may get a glaze of ice, but the immediate metro area should not see ice accumulations.  

The entire event is expected to wrap up between 7 and 9 p.m., and conditions overnight should be dry, but slick spots could develop on the roads before temperatures jump above freezing.
