Enjoy the sunshine Friday.

Northern Virginia is set to see a little more wet stuff — forecasters say the dreaded "wintry mix" — on Saturday. Just when will the possible mix of snow, sleet and rain fall and where?

Here's what we found out from area forecasters:

Capital Weather Gang: "Areas of light snow may develop early to mid- Saturday morning, gradually mixing with sleet and/or rain as the morning wears on in the metro region. Less than 1 inch of snow and sleet is most likely in the D.C. area..."

The Gang says areas to the north and west of D.C., including Loudoun County, will probably be hit hardest Saturday morning.

Any snow or sleet Saturday morning is expected to transition to rain. The high on Saturday is expected to be about 38 degrees, about 10 degrees below normal for this time of year.

When will Northern Virginia see any precipitation? Here's how The Weather Channel breaks it down for Saturday:

  • 6-8 a.m.: Few snow showers
  • 8-12 Noon: Snow showers
  • Noon-9 p.m.: Rain
