The next storm will hit the Washington, D.C., area Tuesday night into Wednesday with a new round of travel delays and disruptions to daily activities at least in part of the area. Another storm is due on Sunday.
While the storm Sunday night began as rain and changed to snow, the midweek storm will start off as snow or an icy mix then is forecast to change to rain along the coast.
Enough snow and wintry mix will fall at the onset of the storm north and west of the city to make some roads and sidewalks slippery.
The bulk of the precipitation will fall after midnight Tuesday and prior to daybreak Wednesday, when it can be rather heavy.
Where the change to rain is delayed or does not occur well north and west, a heavy amount of snow and/or ice will accumulate. In these areas, there is a risk of downed tree limbs and sporadic power outages.
Wednesday's morning commute will be difficult for those well north and west of the city.
Around the city and coastal areas, where a change to rain occurs, there is the potential for urban flooding problems as the rain can come down hard for a brief time.
The region should get a little more of a breather before the next storm rolls in. The timing of the third storm in less than a week is scheduled for Sunday into Monday locally.
The Sunday to Monday storm could be the strongest of the winter, if it develops to its full potential.
In this scenario, there is a chance that the storm will pull cold air down at the last minute, bringing a change back to snow near the coast. The same scenario would bring enough wind to cause coastal flooding at times of high tide on the Atlantic coast of the Delmarva Peninsula Sunday night into Monday.
