WASHINGTON (WUSA9) --- Another round of a wintry mix arrives this afternoon and turns into a mild rain tonight into Wednesday. This is nothing like our Sunday ice. A Winter Weather Advisory has been posted for the entire Metro area, due to the potential for slick spots from that wintry mix during the afternoon into the evening. We have declared today a YELLOW ALERT DAY as well.

There is less cold air available and less moisture available, but even so, there's the potential for sleet and a few snowflakes during the Tuesday PM commute, especially well north and west. The wintry mix will turn to all rain by Tuesday night as temperatures slowly rise. It'll be milder on Wednesday, but it'll stay wet, with periods of rain and showers.

This unsettled pattern sticks with us on Thursday, with rain changing to snow Thursday morning. Thursday's snow totals could be minor or major depending on how quickly the cold air returns and how quickly the moisture moves out. Plan for some disruptions on Thursday, especially in the morning as the storm will be pulling away during the afternoon.
