An area of low pressure will bring unsettled weather across the mid-Atlantic this afternoon. Expect periods of light rain and highs in the upper 40s to middle 50s. Skies will partially clear overnight as temperatures drop into the 30s.

After some morning sun, clouds will increase on Sunday and ultimately give way to showers late in the day. The forecast Monday is a bit tricky as the dreaded "wintry mix" may cause some snarls just in-time for the morning commute, especially north and west of the D.C. metro.
