The D.C. area could see a few snowflakes Saturday, but the snow is not expected to accumulate and some areas won't see it at all.
Any flakes will primarily be around Washington and in areas to the north and west, said Storm Team4 Meteorologist Amelia Segal.
What the entire region will get is a small break from the bone-chilling cold, with temperatures moving back up to the merely seasonally cold. Temperatures will get up to about 33 degrees, which means today is a good day to clear any sidewalks or other areas that have not yet been shoveled.
Tonight, temperatures will dip down below freezing again, and next week the region will see yet another frigid blast.
