    Don't store away all of your T-shirts just yet! Storm Team4 is tracking a rain-free weekend... and rising temps.

    While you might use this time to save money (i.e., not having to pay for heat or A/C at home), you should probably keep the windows closed Friday night. Temperatures will dip down into the 40s, making for a cold start Saturday morning.

    StormTeam4's Amelia Draper warns of potential frost advisories for Frederick, Urbana and Walkersville, Maryland, and Ashburn, Purcellville and Leesburg, Virginia.

    Looking into the weekend, Saturday afternoon will be sunny and 66, much like Friday. You can take advantage of the area's first completely rain-free weekend in October with a visit to an orchard, pumpkin patch or Storey Park's annual NoMa food truck party, Curbside Cookoff, on Saturday.

    Sunday temperatures will warm up into the low 70s, perfect for as the Washington Redskins battle the Philadelphia Eagles at FedExField.

    By next week, you can expect refreshing mornings with temperatures in the 60s, and you should be able to ditch the jacket in the afternoons. Highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s by Tuesday, with a high of 82 on Wednesday.

    These temperatures are more common for September.

    Rain should stay away until next Friday, the first day for potential rain in the 10-day forecast. Since September, we've had been a 2-inch rainfall deficit, and a 3.5-inch deficit since the beginning of 2016.
