Be careful for the rest of the day Bethesda. The wintry mix is starting to hit and road conditions may become dangerous. Keep an eye on the precipitation and take caution when walking outside as sidewalks may have iced over.

The Advisory

(From the Weather Channel)

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 3 PM THIS
AFTERNOON TO 9 PM EST THIS EVENING…

* WHAT…A wintry mix with freezing rain and sleet is expected.
The ice will result in very slippery conditions on sidewalks,
roads and bridges. A light glaze of ice is expected.

* WHERE…The Washington DC metropolitan area, and northern
Piedmont and central foothills of Virginia.

* WHEN…From 3 PM to 9 PM EST Monday.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS…Even if air 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.
