The National Weather Service put out a Special Weather Statement about the sleet and rain mix hitting Bethesda and much of the area this morning:

…WINTRY MIX ACROSS CENTRAL MARYLAND THROUGH MID-MORNING…

PRECIPITATION WILL OVERSPREAD CENTRAL MARYLAND THROUGH 10 AM. PRECIPITATION IS LIKELY TO BEGIN AS A PERIOD OF SNOW AND SLEET BEFORE MIXING WITH AND CHANGING OVER TO RAIN DURING THE LATE MORNING.

SOME AREAS WILL SEE THE SNOW AND SLEET FALL MODERATELY FOR A TIME…WITH THE VISIBILITY REDUCED TO AROUND 1 MILE. AREAS THAT EXPERIENCE MODERATE SNOW AND SLEET COULD RECEIVE A QUICK COATING TO A QUARTER OF AN INCH OF ACCUMULATION. WHILE TEMPERATURES WILL GENERALLY BE IN THE MID TO UPPER 30S…THIS COULD RESULT IN A FEW SLICK SPOTS.

A rain and sleet mix began falling in Bethesda just after 9 a.m.
