New Year’s Day is shaping up to be rainy and mild in the Washington, D.C., area, but this long stretch of unseasonably warm weather will soon end, Storm Team4 says.

Temperatures on Saturday are expected to rise into the 60s.

There will be on and off showers, with some dry periods likely before rain chances increase for the evening.

Sunday’s forecast has more scattered showers and highs in the 60s, then the afternoon will turn gusty.

A strong cold front is set to cross the region Sunday evening, bringing gusty winds and significantly colder air for Monday.

Break out your coat, hat and gloves for Monday. Highs will be in the upper 30s and wind chills will be in the teens and 20s.

Storm Team4 will be on snowflake watch early Monday morning when a few flurries and light snow are south of D.C.

Tuesday and Wednesday will stay chilly with highs in the 40s. We'll get temperatures above 50° on Thursday and Friday, then the D.C. area will be back in the 40s for next weekend.
