While the worst of the cold is likely behind Washington, D.C., for the balance of the winter, there are some storms worth monitoring through the first half of February.

Temperatures reached above the 30-year average Sunday with a high in the mid- to upper 50s. The average high and low for late January/early February is 44 and 29 F respectively. Average temperatures begin to trend upward during February.

A series of storms will affect the region through the new week.

The first storm will bring a mixture of rain and snow on Monday. While there will be travel delays, temperatures will be well above freezing and not allow snow to stick to the pavement.

Another storm during the middle of next week could be strong with heavy precipitation. Odds favor mostly rain with that storm, but just enough cold air may be around during the beginning of the storm to bring some ice and snow, especially well north and west of the city.

A third storm is already being monitored for next weekend. For now with that storm the scale is tipped toward a similar outcome to the midweek event.
