The National Weather Service (NWS) is calling for rain beginning this afternoon around 3 p.m., switching to rain and sleet before 1 a.m. Early Tuesday morning will likely see sleet between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m., followed by snow after 4 a.m.

Calvin Meadows, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said Northern Virginia and the DC region could get between one to two inches of snow overnight. Currently the NWS has a Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 9 p.m. Monday evening through 7 a.m. Tuesday. 

“It is still winter,” Meadows said Monday morning during a telephone interview. “So far compared to last year it’s been a mild one, but it’s still winter.”
