    Washington, D.C., will experience a taste of spring before colder air and a possible storm arrives at midweek.

    Fresh cool air arriving on Sunday will put the brakes on Saturday's warmup.

    Temperatures are still set to rise to near 50 on Sunday, meaning the day will be the city's second warmest so far this month behind Saturday.

    Another mild surge will follow for Monday and Tuesday with temperatures soaring into the 60s. The number of people spending some time outdoors is sure to increase.

    However, this taste of spring will not last long. Temperatures will instead take a tumble at midweek with a storm producing rain and/or snow possibly in the works.
