Rain will turn to snow Tuesday afternoon, just in time to potentially cause problems for the drive home.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory ahead of the wintry precipitation, warning of “hazardous conditions” during the evening commute. The snow will be followed by plummeting temperatures that will turn wet spots into icy patches for the Wednesday morning commute.

More from VDOT and Arlington’s Dept. of Environmental Services:
Forecast temperatures for much of tomorrow afternoon make rain likely at the start of the expected storm. Pretreatment at this point would likely wash away. Crews will be ready with salt for when temps drop. Plowing requires 2 inches of snowfall. #ArlWX https://t.co/JnvPU3tlvu pic.twitter.com/ikyOAtmLBP
