A warmer weekend is in store for Washington, D.C., ahead of another batch of rain for early next week.

The typical high for the city this time of the year is 63 F.

High temperatures both days will be in the low to middle 60s.

The nicer of the two weekend days will be Sunday with sunshine and less wind.

In the wake of locally drenching rain and spotty thunderstorms from Friday night, a stiff breeze from the west and northwest will bring dry air into the region on Saturday.

A new storm forecast to brew near the Gulf coast this weekend will swing northeastward early next week with a dose of drenching rain.
