    Temperatures around the area are expected to fall, thanks to some Canadian air moving in this weekend.

    Storm Team4’s Chuck Bell said partly to mostly sunny skies combined with a brisk northwest breeze will keep the high temperature on Saturday in the mid- to upper 50s. Bell said it will be the coldest day in six months, but Sunday is likely to be even colder.

    The Weather Channel reports the coldest air mass of the season has descended on the nation's Midwest and Northeast, plunging temperatures into the 30s and even high 20s in some areas. Bell said feels-like temperatures will be near 30 degrees Saturday evening.

    Freeze warnings are posted for areas west of Interstate 95 for Saturday night. On Sunday, temperatures are expected to be in the low 50, with plummeting temperatures for Sunday night.

    A hard freeze is expected by Monday morning for all areas except downtown D.C. and places close to the Chesapeake Bay.

    Bell said there is almost no chance for rain until late next week.
