There may be an inch of snow on the ground during the Monday evening commute, according to forecasters at WHDH-TV.
"Don't expect a ton of snow, but a general 1-3" falls late Monday afternoon, through the evening, producing slick roads, perhaps in time for the ride home from work," writes meterologist Chris Lambert in his blog.
Even though not much snow will fall, Lambert said that the snow "will create slick spots on the roads Monday evening and Monday night."
The National Weather Service forecasts the snow will fall mainly after 3 p.m. in the Arlington area. The precipitation will change over to sleet later in the evening. Based on the forecast, a chance of rain and sleet will continue into Tuesday morning.
Lambert also said the snow will change over to sleet and freezing rain "creating an icy glaze on top of the fresh inch or two of snow (close to the coast, snow goes to plain ole drizzle)."
On Tuesday morning, any precipitation will be strictly rain "as warm air finally wins the battle," Lambert said.
