Storms through the middle of this week will bring rain to the Washington, D.C., area. However, there is a slight chance storms later in the week bring some snow.

Expect some rain-related travel delays Wednesday afternoon.

Temperatures will be well above freezing through the day Wednesday, so no real problems from snow and ice are in store through then.

Just enough cold air will move in Wednesday night to support snow or a mix of snow and rain.

The problem is a storm may be too far offshore to tap lingering moisture and bring snow in the first place, let alone bring heavy snow.

If it were to snow with the third storm in the Northeast, chances are it would not be a major snowfall and the snow would be spotty in nature. Locations in western Virginia and Maryland are most likely to receive a period of accumulating snow Wednesday evening.

AccuWeather.com meteorologists will continue to monitor the potential for snow Wednesday night and a fourth storm Friday night.

The weather will be significantly colder this weekend, but not nearly as extreme as the arctic outbreak of a week ago.
