The National Weather Service has issued a freezing rain advisory for Alexandria and much of the Washington, D.C. region until noon Sunday, Jan. 5.

NWS predicts light freezing rain and drizzle early in the morning, changing to rain by midday. Before then, a small accumulation is possible, mostly in northern portions of Anne Arundel and Prince George’s counties. Because of cold ground temperatures, rain could freeze on contact, especially on untreated roads.

NWS warns of slippery roads and urges drivers to slow down and use caution.

Sunday’s advisory is just a precursor to bitterly cold conditions expected for the region Monday through Tuesday evening. Because of an arctic front moving into the region, daily record cold temperatures are expected along with dangerously low wind chills. The air mass may carry the coldest temperatures to Alexandria in 20 years.
