...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 3 PM TO 9 PM EST
MONDAY...

* WHAT...A wintry mix expected, with either freezing rain or rain
that will freeze on contact with very cold ground surfaces. The
ice will result in very slippery conditions on sidewalks, roads
and bridges, including during the evening commute on Monday.
Total ice accumulations of a light glaze are expected.

* WHERE...Portions of The District of Columbia, central and
northern Maryland and central, northern and northwest Virginia.

* WHEN...From 3 PM to 9 PM EST Monday.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Even if temperatures rise above freezing,
the ground and other surfaces are still extremely cold due to
the recent Arctic blast. This increases the likelihood of a
glaze of ice on surfaces.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of freezing rain
will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads.
Slow down and use caution while driving. The latest road
conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by
