A series of weak storms will affect the Washington, D.C. area through next week and will bring a period of snow or flurries every now and then.

A weather pattern favoring multiple weak storms originating from western Canada is in store. While the storms will be weak, they will stir up a little wind.

A repeat of the widespread dense fog from this past Wednesday is not expected.

Most of the storms will bring only periods of clouds. However, a small number of dozen or so storms can also bring periods of snow.

Storms that have a chance of bringing a couple of periods of light snow or flurries in the short term is during Friday night and Saturday night.

Just enough snow could fall on parts of the mid-Atlantic and southern New England to cause slippery travel, especially where the snow falls during the nighttime or at the start of the day.

Later in the month, frigid air that pushes southward over the Midwest will turn eastward and could alter the weak storm pattern to one that favors more potent storms and heavier snow.
