Sledding at the Capitol (Photo via Flickr/smarta)Capitol Hill could get 5 inches or more of snow starting tomorrow, the National Weather Service said this afternoon.

A winter storm watch is in effect for D.C. from Wednesday evening to Thursday night.

Freezing rain is expected tonight, followed by more rain tomorrow. Snow is predicted to hit overnight Thursday, NWS says.

Driving may be dangerous as snow and rain hit, creating slick roads and reducing visibility to about a quarter mile.

School closings are a possibility on Thursday and Friday, according to the Capital Weather Gang. The weather bloggers predict a 50 percent chance of at least 4 inches of snow in D.C. as a whole.
