Grab your jacket and an umbrella — much of the region will be chilly into the evening as showers pass through on Monday.

“Just a really nasty day across the region,” Storm Team4 meteorologist Mike Stinneford said. “And it’s not going to get any better.”

The afternoon has proven to be wet and raw, and rain has been heavy at times. WTOP listeners reported sleet in Loudoun County, Manassas and Woodbridge, and Stinneford said Garrett County, in western Maryland, will see several inches of snow.

Snow was also seen in Fauquier County and Reston.

The Washington Nationals postponed its game set for Monday night. The team plans to play a split doubleheader Tuesday.

One to three inches of snow are either expected or already on the ground north and west of D.C., said Storm Team4 meteorologist Briana Bermensolo.

“Not much sticking to pavement with warm surface temperatures,” she said, “but the precipitation is causing slick conditions and traffic problems."

So what’s the good news for those in favor of warmer weather? Temperatures are expected to rise into the 60s later the week.
