Icy Conditions Likely Saturday Morning

A period of freezing rain is likely across portions of the Washington Region on Saturday morning.

This freezing rain event is currently expected to be pretty short-lived in the immediate Metro Area (between 5am and 10am) however, untreated road conditions will be extremely dangerous due to black ice. Of note: forecast models are notoriously bad at predicting freezing rain events as they typically scour out cold air that is trapped at the surface too quickly.
