The weather will be clear over Washington today, but a different storm is hurtling towards the Pentagon.  The faint of heart would be wise to seek shelter.

Sarah Palin will roar into D.C. on Sunday, mounting up with a pack of bikers that are part of the larger Rolling Thunder veterans demonstration.  The Associated Press reports Palin will be riding a rented motorcycle.

The 2008 vice-presidential candidate will be joined by her husband, Todd Palin in Sunday's ride.  Media has been advised the couple will be in the area around 11 a.m.

Organizers for Rolling Thunder said that Palin is welcome to ride with the group, that spreads awareness of missing servicemen.  However, she has not been offered a speaking role at the event.

"We're not endorsing anybody here," Ted Shpak, one of the ride's leaders said, "and she's definitely not speaking on our stage."

Palin will kick off an East Coast bus tour from the nation's capital, hitting historical sites along the way.  The tour will last for several weeks.

Her supporters hope that this tour is a prelude to a 2012 presidential run, although polling shows she has limited appeal with the country's voters.
