STERLING, VA—Northern Virginia's weekend weather forecast is fairly straightforward: Rainy and cool on Saturday, cloudy and warm on Sunday and strong winds to conclude matters. So says the National Weather Service and other area forecasting outlets.

Showers are expected to move out of here by lunchtime Sunday, which should also feature temperatures trying to break 70 degrees. Amid the warmer temperatures, though, is a blustery warning, according to the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang: "By the end of the weekend, the big story is big wind (beginning) Sunday afternoon. . .through Monday morning around 25 to 40 mph with the potential for gusts around 60 mph."

So there you go. Here's the detailed forecast from the National Weather Service's area bureau in Sterling:

Saturday: Rain likely, mainly after 1pm. Cloudy, with a high near 43. Southeast wind around 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
