WASHINGTON (WNEW/AP) — Another winter storm has left a slushy mess in its path, and transportation officials are once again concerned about refreezing overnight.

Temperatures in the region are expected to remain below freezing and drop to the 20’s Thursday night. Meteorologists say flurries are also possible Thursday night in some areas.

Road conditions are still slippery and hazardous in some areas and weather officials expect that precipitation will refreeze on untreated roads overnight Thursday and into Friday morning.

D.C. schools opened two hours late and most schools in the WNEW listening area in Maryland and Virginia closed on Thursday because a winter storm moved through the area during the morning rush hour.

A Winter Weather Advisory was in effect until noon for D.C., Baltimore and their surrounding suburbs. A Winter Storm Warning was also in effect until noon for parts of southern Maryland and northern Virginia.

D.C. saw about two inches of snow, while some Maryland and Virginia counties accumulated up to three inches.
