Play video An expert analysis on the weekend's winter weather is given in the above video.

After a little snow grazes Washington, D.C., as the weekend comes to an end, fresh cold air will arrive.

Sunday's snow event that will produce 1 to 3 inches of accumulation from Cleveland, Ohio, to Pittsburgh, Pa., to New York City will narrowly miss Washington, D.C.

A little rain set to dampen the city Sunday afternoon will end as flurries Sunday evening. The northern suburbs is where the snow can leave a fresh coating to an inch.

In the wake of the snow, fresh cold air will arrive and hold temperatures to the mid-30s on Monday. That is despite the return of some sunshine.

A high in the mid-40s is more common in Washington, D.C., this time of year.

Temperatures will then return to the teens Monday night before struggling to reach the 30-degree mark on Tuesday.
