Here is a look at the latest projections for snow in the region for Sunday.

WASHINGTON — Ready for some more snow in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia?

Most areas will see one to three inches of snow, with a few areas receiving as much as five inches. Winter Storm Watches cover the entire Metro Area from midnight Sunday until 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

While surface temperatures will be around freezing or even a bit above the snow will fall faster than it can melt. Roads will become snow-covered and slippery but most of the accumulation will be on grassy surfaces.

The middle portion of the DC metro region — leading from Charlottesvile, Virginia through to Dover, Deleware — may see most of the snow. Communities in this path include DC, Gaithersburg, Culpepper, Manassas, Leesburg and Frederick. 

The map below shows the middle section — in blue — where snow models show the most snow may accumulate in the region. The map below that gives snow projections for communities in the region:
