A storm coming on Sunday has the potential to bring snow, ice and travel problems to the Washington, D.C., area.
While a large amount of snow is not expected, the city could receive its first inch or two of snow of the season.
Other cities along the I-95 corridor are also likely to receive their first inch of snow as the storm travels to the northeast including Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York and Boston.
Warmer air is forecast to move in during the storm Sunday evening through Monday, causing a changeover to a wintry mix, then rain from the coast to inland areas.
As usual, areas north and west of the city will have the longest duration of snow and ice, where there is the risk of some downed trees and sporadic power outages, as well as more general slippery road conditions.
The worst conditions in terms of damage and disruptions from an ice buildup will be over the I-81 corridor reaching from the I-77 junction in Virginia northeastward to around Harrisburg, Pa. Travel may still be hazardous in these areas into Monday morning rush hour.
Flight delays at nearby airports are possible Sunday through Monday due to snow and wintry mix at first, then from rain and low ceilings later.
Humidity and storms will continue in Detroit through the week and into the weekend.
