PM Update: Clouds on the increase tonight. Mild with afternoon showers Monday. http://wapo.st/2o92MGe
D.C.-area forecast: Winter quickly yields to another spring fling, with 70s by midweek http://wapo.st/2o7H0T3
Sunday Digit: 7/10 - Wish the snow would stick around longer, but it's gotta go eventually, so might as well enjoy the increasing sun and milder afternoon. Brian, CWG
Snow potential index: 0/10 (↓) Let's just say, I hope you enjoyed what you got Saturday...
8:25p Saturday: Snow and sleet have ended, but it's slushy out there and we are concerned about a refreeze, esp N and W of downtown toward Sunday morning. Could be icy before conditions thaw midmorning. Pedestrians/motorists should use caution.

6:40p - This sloppy mix of snow, sleet, and rain will pull away over next 60-90 minutes from southwest to northeast. But there are slushy, slick roads and sidewalks out there so be careful.. Let us know how conditions are where you are!
Also, we're interested in how much snow fell and where. Let us know how much you measured and your location. Thanks so much!!!

Pictured: Temps at 6:30p. Where temps are 33 or colder and snow fell earlier, untreated surfaces could be slick.
Tell us what you’re seeing, and your location! See our latest updates (wapo.st/2Ez4bjE) and be extra cautious as conditions start worsening now until perhaps 10pm.
Winter weather advisory until midnight, now in D.C. (bit.ly/2CrVvFP)
Conditions could change quickly—temperatures are dropping—and may vary quite a bit throughout the region. Mixed precipitation may continue to be heavy at times through mid-evening (more snow and sleet north and west, and rain and sleet south and... east) but end quickly around 10 p.m.
By dawn, lows in the mid-20s to near freezing with our colder areas seeing some re-freezing of earlier precipitation perhaps means the chance of slick spots through early morning tomorrow.

Despite a sunny morning, we're still generally on track for a quick-hitting but intense wintry event this afternoon and evening.
Clouds increase quickly during the midday, with precipitation breaking out during the mid-to-late afternoon. By 4 p.m. or so, many should be seeing rain changing to snow, which eventually becomes intense while mixing back toward rain from southeast to northwest.
Intensity is a big wildcard here. Precipitation could be quite heavy at times in the period around sunset into evening. More AM thoughts: http://wapo.st/2C52Dw8
D.C.-area forecast: Rain and snow arrive this afternoon; some accumulation likely into tonight http://wapo.st/2ociHmd
Saturday's digit: 5/10 - Some time to get stuff done in the morning, and snowflakes in the afternoon. Could be worse!
Snow potential index: 6/10 (↑) North/west parts of the area have a good shot to see snow accumulation Sat PM. Less certain around the city and south.
No fundamental changes in early model runs tonight. NAM model is slightly milder, but also some quick-hitting heavy precipitation Saturday PM can try to offset warmer ideas.
Winter weather advisory has been issued for north/west suburbs starting at 2 p.m. Saturday. It may be extended into the local area, and wintry precipitation is likely closer in despite the lack of advisory at this point.
