Snowflakes greeted parts of Washington, D.C. metropolitan area Monday morning.

Snowflakes began falling in parts of Spotsylvania County around 7:30 a.m. today. The fast moving Alberta clipper from West Virginia is making its way north along the 1-95 Corridor, so as commuters drive into Washington, D.C. northbound, or as they drive southbound away from Washington, D.C., they will experience some light snow flurries mixed with some icy rain.

Precipitation will continue through most of the morning, and is expected to taper off by noon. Very little accumulation is expected, and most of the precipitation is likely to melt on contact.
