WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - A mix of rain, sleet and snow is expected to come through the DC-metro area Sunday evening -- but we should expect to see an even bigger impact from a system coming through the area Tuesday night into Wednesday.
For the DC metro area Sunday night, there will mainly be rain, maybe a little bit of ice -- an inch or two, but no more than that. Areas north and northwest of the District should see the greatest impact.
Areas north and northwest -- Northwest Montgomery, Carroll, Frederick, Northern Baltimore, Northwest Harford, Northwest Howard, and Washington Counties are under a Winter Weather Advisory overnight Sunday until 3 a.m. Monday.
For Presidents' Day -- those in the area can expect a few morning clouds which will become sunshine, breezy with winds at 10 to 20 mph.
Temperatures for your Presidents' Day will be upper 40s to low 50s.
Precipitation is moving quickly from west to east across the area. Higher elevations remain near or below the freezing mark, so be aware that slippery conditions could develop in these areas.
Looking ahead, the National Weather Service has raised all zones in our region to an “enhanced threat of a winter storm” on Wednesday. Previously, the immediate DC/Baltimore corridors were only in a slight risk.
Wednesday morning we could see snow transitioning to sleet, as well as freezing rain and rain during the day.
