Accumulating snow returns to the Metro by Thursday morning. Temperatures will fall into the 20s Thursday PM as snow becomes heavy at times. Yellow Alert Thursday. Roads get worse throughout the day.
WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Rain will change to snow during the morning hours and roads will worsen as temperatures continue to fall.
Our Yellow Alerts are in effect through Friday morning. A steadier and more widespread rain has developed over the entire Metro Area. It is this rain that turns to snow by dawn as temperatures across the area begin to drop after midnight.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the entire Metro Area Thursday and of course we issued a Yellow Alert as well. Snow will be heaviest in areas farther north and west where the change over will occur a bit earlier. Snow looks to continue through most of the day. Roads may not be that bad Thursday morning but they will just get worse throughout the day as temperatures drop into the 20s with more heavy snow. The heaviest snow falls between 9 AM and 4 PM.
