Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 9:46 a.m. Oct. 9, 2015 

Clouds will increase Friday, with a few isolated showers during the first half of the day. Temperatures will shoot to around 80 degrees, with rain expected for the afternoon and evening. A cold front will approach the region, eventually sinking to the south and east Friday night after 8. Meanwhile, winds will pick up during the afternoon and stay breezy through the first half of Saturday. The most likely window for rain will be from 3 p.m. in our western suburbs, to the east and off to the Eastern Shore by 8 to 9 p.m. There could be some gusty winds as well as heavy downpours as the rain moves through. As the front sinks south, winds will really pick up, gusting up to 25 mph at times during the overnight.

Sustained winds around 10 mph are expected through the first part of Saturday, but will eventually die down through the afternoon. Clouds will diminish during Saturday afternoon after starting off with cloudy conditions. Temperatures will be much cooler — only topping out in the mid- to upper 60s! Overnight lows on Saturday night into Sunday with clear skies will drop into the 30s and 40s. So after a chilly start on Sunday morning, we are back around 70, with sunny skies on Sunday with mid-70s on Monday. Light rain chances return on Tuesday as another front moves through the region.
