Power outages, heavy traffic as rain covers DC region

- Steady rain moved into the region as temperatures climbed into the 60s on Friday.

The rain, which was heavy in some areas and misty in others, fell across most of the D.C. metro area. It is expected to remain wet throughout the day with a dry period possible this afternoon.

Commuters saw heavier than usual traffic conditions for the morning commute. FOX 5 also saw power outage numbers in the D.C. and Northern Virginia areas. In Gaithersburg, a pole down on Route 28 and Tschiffely Square Road caused traffic delays.

Showers will continue into tomorrow morning where temperatures will drop into the 50s. Aside from a chance for sleet Saturday morning, a fairly dry weekend is expected. Snow chances return on Tuesday.
