Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 4:26 a.m. Oct. 9, 2015 

Have the umbrella handy Friday. There are some scattered showers and the chance of a few isolated storms in the forecast, especially later in the day. The highest likelihood of encountering rain falls between 4 and 10 p.m. in the D.C.-metro area. If a storm or two does materialize, it could have some strong gusty winds and heavier rain. Otherwise, sun will give way to clouds, with it actually feeling a bit humid and mild, as well.

The rain chances are due to a cold front that will have a noticeable impact on temperatures Saturday, with highs staying in the 60s. Clouds will give way to sun on Saturday with a bit of a breeze early. Sunday and Monday, Columbus Day, will be pleasant with plenty of sun and highs around 70. Overall, a fairly enjoyable fall weekend is in store for whatever your outdoor plans may be.
