From midnight until dawn, rain can be heavy at times, adding up to about an inch in many places. Wind is expected to increase from the north and northeast throughout the night, with gusts around 30 mph at dawn. Temperatures are expected to drop into the 40s to low 30s.
From before dawn until sunrise, rain is expected to change to heavy, wet snow or a snow-rain mix from northwest to southeast.
Any elevated areas may be covered quickly or more, mostly on grass, but this may also cause roads to be covered in slush in places. Snow may remain mixed with rain over southern Maryland, but could reach up to an inch or two throughout the morning in the northwest suburbs. Temperatures could briefly touch freezing in colder locations, but many will stay above, with a range of around 32 to 38 degrees for lows as sunrise approaches.
