Cold weekend ahead for DC region; eyes on a system that could bring light snow, mix early Monday

Relatively warmer temperatures are back Thursday but they won't be here for much longer, says FOX 5's Mike Thomas. Expect it to feel more like winter over the weekend when temperatures drop back into the 30s and 40s which is much more seasonable for this time of year in our area.

Thursday began with showers, fog and drizzle across the D.C. region. The morning was mild and wasn't a total washout but there was plenty of wet weather to go around. The warmer air in our region will stick around until Friday morning. Highs near 62 are anticipated with colder air moving in during the evening hours.

A storm system to the west is gathering the cold air that will head our direction just in time for the weekend. Saturday is expected to be sunny, cold and breezy with highs near 37 degrees. Look for some afternoon clouds on Sunday with highs near 42 degrees. No rain is expected either day, Thomas says, but it will be cold!

Early Monday morning all eyes will be on a weather system that could bring a little snow that transitions to a mix to areas north of the D.C. metro region. Parts to the south of the metro area will likely only see rain.
