Threat of storms moves out of DC area, power outages remain

It looks like the weather will take pity on the D.C. region Friday, as most of the storms threatening the area have moved out, though they left some power outages in their wake.

The bulk of the outages are in Fairfax County, with just over 1,300 customers without power in those regions.

Cooler air will move in following the storm, and temperatures should dip into the low 60s to upper 50s Friday night.
