More winter storms coming this week

Posted: Updated:

ACCUWEATHER - The next storm will hit the Washington, D.C., area Tuesday night into Wednesday with a new round of travel delays and disruptions to daily activities at least in part of the area.

While the storm Sunday night began as rain and changed to snow, the midweek storm will start off as snow or an icy mix and then is forecast to change to rain along the coast.

Enough snow and wintry mix will fall at the onset of the storm north and west of the city to make some roads and sidewalks slippery.

More or just as much snow may fall in the northern and western suburbs with the midweek storm, compared to Monday's event.

Where the change to rain is delayed or does not occur well north and west, a heavy amount of snow and/or ice will accumulate. In these areas, there is a risk of downed tree limbs and sporadic power outages.

Wednesday's morning and evening commute will be difficult for those well north and west of the city.

Around the city and coastal areas, where a change to rain occurs, there is the potential for urban flooding problems as the rain can come down heavy at times.

The region should get a little more of a breather before the next storm rolls in. The timing of the third storm in less than a week is scheduled for Sunday into Monday locally.

Odds favor a similar scenario to Wednesday's storm. However, there is a chance the storm will pull cold air down at the last minute, bringing a change back to snow near the coast.

The storm scheduled for late next weekend may bring enough wind to cause coastal flooding at times of high tide on the Atlantic coast of Delmarva Sunday night into Monday.

Be alert for areas of black ice in the wake of each storm this week and next, as temperatures will drop below freezing at night. Untreated wet and slushy areas will freeze.
