The National Weather Service warned that even after snow tapers off around noon today, winds are expected to pick up and temperatures could drop.

In a Special Weather Statement, the National Weather Service said slick spots should be expected on some local roadways, even after the snowing stops.

According to the National Weather Service:

…Areas of freezing drizzle through midday. Becoming blustery and turning sharply colder in the afternoon…

Areas of freezing drizzle can be expected from the Blue Ridge and Catoctin Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay until about noon today. Precipitation may change briefly back to snow before it ends with little or no additional snow accumulation expected. As the precipitation ends, expect blustery northwest winds to strengthen and gust to about 30 mph with temperatures decreasing during the afternoon. Expect slick spots on roadways especially over bridges and any untreated surfaces.

Yard waste recycling, recycling and trash were also not collected today due to the snowy weather. Trash collection will slide back two days this week, meaning the Monday collection is on Wednesday, Tuesday collection is on Thursday, etc.
