Grab an umbrella and hold onto it tight: What’s left of Hurricane Ian will bring a weekend of rain to the Washington, D.C. area.

Saturday is expected to be a rainy and windy day with gusts up to 40 mph. Skies remain cloudy with passing rain showers and cool temperatures throughout the day, according to the National Weather Service.

Heavy rain will be more of a concern on Sunday.

The D.C. area won't get severe weather with this storm, but minor to moderate coastal flooding is a possibility.

Southern Maryland and southeastern Virginia are some of the areas bracing for more disruptive impacts. In Arlington, Alexandria and Charles counties, coastal flood advisories are set from early Saturday to Sunday.

News4's Walter Morris and Solangi Sosa show us how the D.C. area is preparing for the weekend rain.

The D.C. area won't see anything close to the widespread destruction in parts of Florida.
