    Watch Chuck Bell's daytime forecast for Sunday, February 3, 2013. (Published Sunday, Feb 3, 2013)

    Two consecutive days of snow flurries could become three on Sunday -- but don't expect very much of the white stuff to actually make it to ground.

    The latest forecast from Storm4 meteorologist Chuck Bell calls for the first of three fast-moving, low-pressure "Alberta clipper" systems to pass through the region Sunday. That could bring between a half-inch and one inch of snow.

    This comes after 0.2 inches of snow were recorded at Reagan National Airport following a brief squall Saturday evening. The second Alberta clipper system is expected to pass through the D.C. Metro area Monday evening, with the third expected Tuesday evening.

    One thing working against the possibility of Sunday snow is relatively mild temperatures, which could reach as high as 41 degrees.

    The latest forecast comes on the heels of a dusting of snow Friday morning, which resulted in several school districts opening late. For the very latest info, check out our interactive radar.
