Another windy day Friday will be followed by concerns of frost or freezing.

Storm Team4 has declared it another Weather Alert Day.

A wind advisory is in effect again from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday for much of the D.C. area. Gusts could blow around unsecured objects, knock down tree limbs and cause power outages.

Expect winds of 20-30 mph with potential gusts stronger than 40 mph.

The conditions could create a risk of the spread of wildfires.

A freeze watch will be in effect for parts of the area late Friday into Saturday, though Storm Team4 says that could become more of a frost concern. Take precautions to protect plants by taking them inside or covering them and water pipes by wrapping them, draining them or allowing them to drip slowly.

Saturday will be cool and still breezy, with temps in the 50s, but dry. Mild weather is looking to make a comeback on Sunday. It will still be breezy, with temps in the high 60s.

Next workweek could start with rain. Sprinkles could move in Sunday night, then heavy rain and thunder are expected early Monday.
