STERLING, VA—With the region's first snowfall nearly a memory, there's still a winter storm warning Thursday night for parts of Northern Virginia—areas in an around Loudoun County, in particular. That's the word from the National Weather Service bureau in Sterling and other area forecasting outlets.

As is pointed out by the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang, "temperatures probably won’t fall much from where they are now, but there is some risk for iciness to develop overnight if they remain near freezing in parts of the area."
