Cooler, but dry weather will settle in for the second half of the weekend on Sunday ahead of an upcoming wet week.

After some recent wet weather, the weekend will end on a dry and slightly cooler note as a high pressure system settles into the region.

No weather-related travel issues are expected around the city Sunday.

Fans attending the Nationals game Sunday afternoon could benefit from bringing a light jacket as temperatures will hover in the mid- to upper 60s during the game, about 10 degrees cooler than Saturday afternoon.

Although the dry weather will extend into Monday morning, rain will move back into the area Monday afternoon as a large and slow-moving storm will move in from the Central states.

That storm has the potential to bring rounds of soaking rain, locally strong thunderstorms and chilly conditions over several days. Temperatures much of the time on most days will be in the 50s to low 60s.
