Fat slow flakes were seen from the WAMU building in Tenleytown, D.C., early Saturday, but no accumulation is expected.

Update, Dec. 29: The snow that had been predicted for much of the D.C. region will largely miss the area, according to forecasters. 

Forecasters were expecting the bulk of the snow to fall Saturday morning, with the snow changing over to rain in D.C. and close-in suburbs by mid day. Instead the District and its suburbs will see mostly rain, with areas further north, such as Frederick and Hagerstown, expected to get between 2-3 inches.

The District of Columbia's Department of Public Works deployed its snow team Dec. 28, with plans to pre-treat roads Friday evening, according to DPW officials.
