D.C.-area snow fanatics may finally get the accumulations they’ve been hoping for on Sunday and Monday, but first, we’ve got to withstand more frigid air Friday.

A storm system will bring snow to the area by Sunday morning. Snow could continue throughout the day, accumulating 2-5 inches by 8 p.m.

Then warm air could move in overnight, potentially changing some precipitation to a wintry mix through Monday morning.

"Sunday, it looks like the main flavor that's falling from the sky will be snow," Storm Team4 Meteorologist Amelia Draper said.

"Not a big storm, but Sunday should be pretty," Storm Team4 Chief Meteorologist Doug Kammerer said.

Some Virginia residents south of D.C. got a taste of snow with a few morning flurries Thursday.

Those flurries passed, leaving the D.C. area with wind and frigid chills in the 20s. Friday is looking similarly cold and windy, with gusts up to 40 mph throughout the day and wind chills in the teens and 20s.

Winds will be lighter, but it will still be cold on Saturday with highs only in the 30s.
