Residents in Washington, D.C., will be shivering the next few days, while the threat of a storm just before Valentine's Day is being monitored.

Fresh frigid air is following the little rain and snow that brushed Washington, D.C., as the weekend came to an end.

Temperatures will be held to the lower and middle 30s Monday through Wednesday with lows generally in the teens.

Dry weather will hold these days, while waves of snow and ice threaten to severely impact travel and daily routines in the South.

AccuWeather.com meteorologists are monitoring the potential for the significant snow, ice and rain to turn northward and slam the Northeast--including the Washington, D.C., area--Wednesday night through Thursday morning.

However, there is also a chance that the Northeast will escape the storm's wrath or experiences a glancing blow if the storm heads out to sea after menacing the South.

Residents should continue to check back with AccuWeather.com for the latest updates on Thursday's possible winter storm.
