In the wake of 60-degree Fahrenheit temperatures from Thursday, a warmup is in store for Washington, D.C., this weekend.

The early stages of the warmup will have a few bumps along the way.

A disturbance dropping southeastward from Canada may bring spotty thundershowers to the mid-Atlantic Friday afternoon.

Temperatures will recover to close to seasonable levels this coming weekend thanks to an ample amount of sunshine both days. Temperatures at the end of May typically range from a low near 60 to a high near 80.
