The National Weather Service has issued a  freezing rain advisory for the Fairfax area from 6 a.m. to noon on Sunday.

Accumulation is expected to be less than one-tenth of an inch, but it will be enough to make driving dangerous, particularly on untreated roads, according to the NWS.

See the  forecast for Fairfax and more  from The Weather Channel.

"A cold ground and temperatures near or below freezing will allow rain to freeze on contact," notes the advisory. "Be prepared for slippery roads. Slow down and use caution while driving."

According to the weather services, the best chance for freezing rain will be mid to late Sunday morning.
