Monday evening’s winter weather brought snow, sleet, and freezing rain. The snowfall caused certain D.C. area suburbs to get between six-and-a-half and 10 inches, while only three inches accumulated in parts inside the Beltway.
The Capital Weather Gang reported that The Weather Service discontinued advisories for most of the region, but a winter storm warning remains in effect for Frederick County. Montgomery and Howard counties also have a weather advisory in place until 2 p.m.
No further significant accumulation is expected as the bulk of the storm appears to be over. Despite this, continue to expect the temperature to stay above freezing around the Beltway through at least 6 p.m.
