Strong, gusty winds are roaring through the D.C. area Tuesday, and a wind advisory is in effect.

Storm Team4 declared a weather alert day Tuesday due to the forceful winds.

Powerful winds gusting up to 40 to 50 mph are the biggest weather concern. Those gusts could bring down large limbs and power lines, Storm Team4 says.

A wind advisory is set until midnight in much of the D.C. area, including Northern Virginia and much of Maryland. Here's a full list of weather alerts.

Tuesday is cloudy and cool, with highs in the 60s. A few fast-moving rain showers are possible during the afternoon and evening.

Breezy, blustery conditions are set to persist into Wednesday, but the skies are expected to have more sunshine and no rain.

Clouds will return Thursday afternoon and showers could return after sunset.

As Halloween approaches, the weekend forecast has both tricks and treats.

Bring an umbrella out on Friday and be ready for another 1 to 2 inches of rain. There's an 80% chance of rain, and it could be heavy at times.

Heavy rain is forecast to taper to occasional showers by Friday evening.

Clouds and showers will hang around well into Saturday afternoon before the sun makes a return for Halloween on Sunday.
