As cold air lingers around Washington, D.C., through midweek, a snowstorm will graze the region.
Through Wednesday, high temperatures will be held to within a couple of degrees of the 40 F mark, which is more representative of a typical January day.
A high close to 60 F is more common this time of the year.
While a storm delivering snow on Tuesday will not evolve into a blizzard until after moving well past Washington, D.C., a coating to an inch or two of snow is still expected for the nation's capital.
The majority of the snow will accumulate on grassy and elevated surfaces and not on roads due to the effects of the strong March sun. It would take a heavy burst of snow, which cannot be ruled out for Tuesday, for roads to briefly turn slippery during the day.
Gusty winds in the wake of the snow could cause Wednesday to be the coldest day of the week, in terms of AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.
Temperatures are forecast to rebound to or above seasonable levels late in the week.
