Even though not much snow is falling, Sunday's winter storm could make for some slippery conditions on the region's roads.
So far, winter this year has been relatively mild -- especially when compared with last year's snowpocalypse. But the weather is keeping the folks at AAA surprisingly busy.
"For the last several days, we have had thousands of extra calls at AAA Mid-Atlantic," AAA spokesman Lon Anderson says.
He says the temperatures in this area usually hover around freezing, which means snow melts and then refreezes, turning into ice.
"Unfortunately, the nature both of our weather here and of our drivers, means that a small amount of snow becomes a huge issue for us," Anderson says.
In fact, he says, in some ways less snow can be worse in that it leads people to underestimate just how bad the roads really are.
