The snow shovels have been largely dormant this winter, but they may get some work Wednesday morning.

The D.C. area may be hit be more than 5 inches of snow this week, as the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for Tuesday evening through Wednesday evening.

The forecast calls for a wintry mix starting Tuesday afternoon and turning into snow overnight from Northern Virginia up the coast, with temperatures dropping into the mid-30s. The heaviest accumulations will occur west of D.C., according to forecasts from NBC Washington.

The morning commute is expected to be hampered on Wednesday. A combination of heavy, wet snow and gusts up to 30 miles per hour could also lead to power outages through the area.

If accumulation levels are as high as predicted in the forecasts, it would be the largest storm the area has seen all winter.
