The storm system is expected to move out of the area by mid-afternoon Saturday, leaving sunny skies and cold weather in its place.
Temperatures Saturday night will drop into the upper 20s. Sunday will be sunny and windy with temperatures struggling to reach 40 again. Football fans will want to bundle up for the Redskins game Sunday night, as temperatures drop back into the 20s under clear skies.
