Winter Weather conditions may snarl first morning commute of work week

A duo of low pressure systems will track northward from the south and southwest of the Capital Region through the day Monday. This, in conjunction with a departing area of high pressure to the north, will keep a shallow layer of sub-freezing air over the Capital Region, at the surface, through at least Monday morning.

Snowfall will likely overspread the Capital Region this evening as the systems work northward, one being in the vicinity of the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys, and the other being over the Atlantic coast. Eventually, warmer air will work its way into the mid levels of the atmosphere, over the Capital Region, during the morning hours on Monday. Snow is then forecast transition to a mix of sleet and/or freezing rain for a time, most likely coinciding with the morning commute on Monday. Eventually, with the high pressure moving further away from the area by Monday afternoon, the surface temperatures should slowly approach, and exceed, the freezing mark, changing any precipitation to light rainfall and showers during the afternoon.

Travel conditions will deteriorate rapidly overnight tonight, with untreated surfaces likely becoming snow and ice covered, slippery, and treacherous. The morning commute will likely be tricky, to say the least, on Monday morning. Prepare to allow for extra time for travel on Monday morning.

A total of one to three inches of snowfall is forecast over the Capital Region, with minor icing accumulations also possible. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the entire region from 10:00 PM EST Sunday to 12 Noon EST on Monday for the potential of snow and/or ice accumulations that may cause travel difficulties.
