The White House North Lawn is covered in snow after a fast moving winter storm moved through the Washington region the night before, Thursday, Jan. 27, 2011.

After a weekend of unseasonably warm weather in the 60s, the Washington, D.C. region was greeted by snow flurries Monday afternoon.

According to NBC4 meteorologist Doug Kammerer, some areas may see light to moderate accumulation on grassy surfaces. Temperatures in the low 40s will likely prevent the snow from sticking on roadways, which will be good news for drivers making their way home during the evening commute.

The snowfall is expected to wrap up around 8 p.m.
