Wet weather is the name of the game across the region on Monday.

After a warm weekend that saw temperatures climb into the 50s, the D.C. region has returned to winter weather Monday, with the National Weather Service issuing a winter storm warning until 4 p.m. for parts of the region from Northern Virginia through Baltimore.

Moderate rain was falling in the District in the early morning and light snow of less than an inch was expected in the early afternoon. Accumulation may be greater closer to Baltimore and in the mountainous parts of the region to the west.

Some school systems, including Frederick, Carroll, and Shenandoah Counties, delayed openings. Others, including Warren, Washington and Winchester Counties, are closed for the day. For a full list, visit the list from our partners at NBCWashington.

And while Monday's wintry mix will be a headache for commuters, that's not the end of the sloppy weather this week. The NWS forecast calls for more snow Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, and the possibility of more wintry weather over the weekend as another low pressure system moves into the system.
