Je vais pouvoir ressortir...why pouvoir?

Je vais pouvoir ressortir...why pouvoir?

Why is the pouvoir necessary in this sentence? I would translate it as : I am going to bring out my spring clothes. What does the "pouvoir" add to the sentence that I am missing? Thank you!

Hi Maren,

It just means -

I am going to be able to bring out my spring clothes

as opposed to -

Je vais ressortir I am going to bring out 

Hope this helps!
