    Breathe a sigh of relief: We're done with winter weather for the next few days. And after the big storm, we're expecting temperatures at nearly 70 degrees. 

    Storm Team4 expects temperatures in the 40s in the D.C. area on Friday and Saturday, and then in the high 60s on Sunday. There's a 100 percent chance of rain on Saturday, followed by a 70 percent chance on Sunday.

    Here's a look at the next few days. 

    Clearing skies Thursday afternoon will get temps into the low to mid 50s, so nearly all of Wednesday's snow will be gone by sunset.

    Although we're getting a break from freezing weather, don't expect sunny skies. Clouds will thicken again Thursday night, with precious little sunshine again until Sunday afternoon.

    Friday will be cloudy and chilly all day, with highs in the mid to upper 40s and possibly a few sprinkles of rain.

    The chance for rain has risen to 100 percent for Saturday, with up to 1 inch of rain likely.

    "The weekend isn't picture perfect, but it's not a washout either," Storm Team4 Meteorologist Amelia Draper said. 

    The steadiest rain will come Saturday afternoon through early Sunday morning. We'll have a high of 46 degrees on Saturday. 

    A strong southwest wind will arrive by late Sunday morning, helping to move out some of the clouds and boost temperatures way into the 60s, with some areas approaching 70 degrees.

    A cold front will pass by Sunday night, so gusty winds on Monday will be coming.  Expect plenty of sunshine on Monday, with highs only near 50.

    Tuesday will be sunny and chilly, and there's a chance we will have to deal with a little rain/snow mix next Wednesday morning.
