After a blustery start to the week, milder and more tranquil conditions will settle around Washington, D.C., for the second half of the week.

Much less wind is in store for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

The temperature trend will bottom out Wednesday with highs projected to be in the upper 40s.

Highs are forecast to be in the 50s Thursday and cold touch 60 on Friday, provided clouds stay away long enough.

However, the mild weather will not last long.

A potent storm system will affect the area this coming weekend with the chance of rain Saturday, then the potential for high winds on Sunday, bringing in the coldest blast of air so far this season.
