Mild overnight with a late shower possible but not much if any fog. Lows will fall into the mid 50s to mid 60s.

A cold front will move through the Metro Area Saturday.

The best chance of showers will be south of DC. It will turn cold briefly behind the front with highs only in the low to mid 50s Sunday.
