This Week's Weather: Chance for Wintry Mix Monday, Clearing Midweek
Forecast Monday calls for snow before noon, then rain, snow and sleet likely.
It's still officially winter and Mother Nature might deliver a reminder on Monday, according to the National Weather Service forecast.
Expect a rocky start to the week with a possible wintry mix of snow, sleet or rain Monday that could make for longer commutes.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Fairfax County that started Sunday at midnight and continues Monday until 2 p.m.
Here's what the National Weather Service says to expect:
Monday: Snow before noon, then rain, snow, and sleet likely. High near 40. East wind around 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. New snow and sleet accumulation of about an inch possible.
The Capital Weather Gang says: "An early- to mid-morning wintry mix (60 percent chance) threatens (a) dusting in the city to a couple inches far north and west, and a generally lousy Monday morning commute."
Tuesday: Showers likely before noon. Mostly sunny, with a high near 53. Breezy, with a northwest wind 9 to 14 mph increasing to up to 20 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 70 percent. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.
Wednesday brings the first day of spring at 7:02 a.m. Expect partly sunny skies with highs in the mid-40s. That should continue through Friday.
