An arctic chill brings the possibility of rain or snow showers this weekend.

Many in the D.C. Metro region woke up to snow-covered lawns and sidewalks Saturday morning. Although most of the flakes may have melted by early afternoon, another arctic chill is expected to hit the region, bringing the possibility of an additional snow shower.

The National Weather Service reports that a line of rain and snow will move through the D.C. region late afternoon. High winds and some thunder are also possible.

Total accumulation of less than half an inch is likely in most parts of the region, but NBC4 meteorologist Chuck Bell says areas to the north and west of town may see up to 2 inches of snow.

The forecast for Sunday is sunny and breezy, with a high of 35.
