The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for Montgomery and Prince George's counties until 1 p.m. today. The alert calls for a mix of freezing rain, sleet and rain, with possible accumulations of less than one inch of sleet and under a tenth of an inch of ice.

According to the National Weather Service, a coastal storm could affect the area later this week.
Another storm is headed our way, but according to the National Weather Service, it’s not expected to pack quite the punch that Hurricane Sandy did. The current forecast calls for rain showers beginning Wednesday, changing to a rain and snow mix at night, according to meteorologist Heather Sheffield. At this point, she said, NWS isn’t expecting any accumulation. The storm will have a “tight gradient of precipitation,” Sheffield said, meaning, essentially, it’s not expected to be a large storm. The storm may extend as far west as the Interstate 95 Corridor, she said, though the location isn’t yet certain. Right now, models show the storm -- which is forming along the southeast coast – moving further east off the coast, “so that’s good for …

However, Accuweather forecaster Alex Sosnowski says that, depending on how temperatures shake out, we could…
