5:02 am
weather radar and show you where things are right now. it is starting to fill in. we have a little bit of light snow in ts as well if you take alook along the line of northwest d.c. stretching its way over towards ocean city. you can see a little bit of light snow activity going on and all that tching is a mixture of sleet and freezing rain. -- and all that pink is a mixture of sleet and freezing rain. it doesn't help the conditions very much at all. it is still going to be messy and still kind of aggravating for you as you try to get around. but once again, this will continue throughout the course of the morning hours and change into rain in parts of the afternoon. so let's go to our weather maps. we'll show you where we have a winter weather advisory. garrett county is under a winter warning with about an
5:03 am

5:06 am
down, it is definitely getting very slick so i would caution people as they head out, perhaps the road might be okay for you if it has been treated at this point but you have to be careful once the stuff really starts to stick on the sidewalks and on the parking lots and any of those paths that you may have to cross by foot. virginia has been updating its weather conditions. you can go on twitter at 511 virginia. fairfax county, loudoun county, still reporting wet road conditions but, as julie has been reporting, in the southern parts of the county, southern and western stafford, fauquier and spotsylvania, they are seeing icy patches at this point. maryland is also letting people know on md 511.

5:19 am
have the warm front with the low pressure system moving in. that is setting us up for the very active weather. the freezing rain will change to rain by the afternoon hours. the early part expected to be on the wet side before we start to get into mainly just a little bit of a break. not a total washout into the course of the affect. this is one particular model showing us by the time we hit into the 6:00 hour, we are really in the mix of things. the rain is behind t you can see the rain starting to fill in before we get a break into the course of tonight. let's check in now with traffic with julie wright. >> all right. already starting to hear from a lot of folk around the listening and viewing area about the icy conditions that they are encountering. craig said icy conditions for his commute traveling through waldorf so heads up along 301 and 5 trying to make your way out towards brandywine and out to the capital beltway. make sure you have plenty of wiper fluid. not a bad idea to top that off
