Snow on March 17/Credit: Alison KamatReston may see its first snowfall of 2015 — and really, of the entire winter so far — on Tuesday, National Weather Service forecasters said.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Reston, Northern Virginia and most of the DC area from 4 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday.

A Winter Weather Advisory means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties, the NWS said.

Temperatures will drop into the low 20s Monday night with a 30 percent chance of snow. Early Tuesday, there is a 90 percent chance of flakes falling.

The snow will begin about 5 a.m., so beware before you commute on Tuesday.

Most of the snow will fall before 1 p.m., the NWS says, with accumulations here expected to be 1 to 2 inches. The high will be about 35 degrees.

Whatever falls may stick around as temperatures are expected to remain below normal Wednesday, with a high of 27 and a low of 11.

Reston Now will keep you apprised of any closings or delays due to snow.
