After rain from Zeta clears, DC region to experience cool temperatures this weekend

The remnants of Hurricane Zeta will bring scattered showers to the D.C. region Friday morning, before temperatures dip this weekend.

Temperatures Friday will be chilly, with highs in the low to mid 50s, Storm Team4 meteorologist Amelia Draper said.

Once the early showers subside, it will be cloudy, chilly and breezy, Draper said.

The D.C. region received between 1 and 2.5 inches of rain Thursday.

Saturday will bring cooler temperatures, with the National Weather Service issuing a frost advisory from 3 a.m. to 9 a.m. Temperatures in the suburbs will be in the 30s, with D.C. expected to see figures in the 40s, Draper said.

The chance for some rain returns Sunday, and a cold front Sunday night into Monday morning will result in Monday morning wind chills in the 20s.
