    DC: Turn to Milder Weather for Easter Weekend

    The recent stretch of cool weather in Washington, D.C., will depart for Easter weekend.

    A milder Saturday is shaping up for Washington, D.C., despite winds flipping around to the northwest.

    A change to that wind direction typically means cooler air will start pouring in. In Saturday's case, such winds will stop the air from flowing in from the cold ocean.

    Underneath some sunshine, temperatures on Saturday will rebound to the middle to upper 60s.

    Similar temperatures will follow for Sunday, but places toward the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean will be cooler as the wind direction once again flips and air flowing from the cold ocean will resume.

    Rain-free conditions will complement the weather both days, allowing Easter egg hunts and other festivities to go on as scheduled.

    Residents and visitors will still need their jackets for Easter sunrise services. Temperatures Sunday morning are expected to dip into the middle 40s in the District and even into the 30s in some northern and western suburbs.
