The Tri-State area should experience its first measurable snowfall of the season Saturday, weather forecasters said Friday.

The National Weather Service in Sterling, Va., has placed the entire area under a winter weather advisory from 7 a.m. through 9 p.m. Saturday, according to the weather service's Web site.

Snow is expected to begin falling across the region around sunrise, with the heaviest snowfall in the afternoon, the weather service said.

Two to four inches of snow is expected to accumulate before snow tapers off in the evening, the NWS said.

The weather service advises travelers to be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility, and to use caution while driving.
