    Rain should cease in the D.C. area Saturday afternoon as the remnants of a system that brought tornadoes to areas of the Ohio and Tennessee Valley passes through.

    A flash flood warning issued by the National Weather Service expired at 7a.m. Saturday with no reports of significant damage or casualties in the area.

    The latest forecast from Storm4 meteorologist Chuck Bell calls for the rain to end around noon Saturday, while winds will increase to between 15 and 25 miles per hour. Sunday will be partly to mostly cloudy and slightly cooler, though temperatures for both days should be in the 50s.

    Colder temperatures are expected for Monday as an Alberta Clipper system is expected to hit the area then.
