Summer isn’t here to stay just yet, say the folks at Capital Weather Gang.
There’s a 40 to 60-percent chance of thunderstorms today, starting around 6 p.m.–and we’d agree that the chance is likely given the gray clouds hanging over the Reston area right now, and how the winds started picking up around lunchtime.
Though Reston saw temps in the high 80s to lower 90s this past weekend, with abundant sunshine, the forecast is trending cooler through the rest of the week and even into the weekend, making it feel more like March, say the Gang.
Tuesday and Wednesday are looking to be the week’s sole bright spots, with temps approaching the low 80s. Winds are likely to be rather gusty though, hitting 25mph at some points throughout the day Tuesday.
Expect it to be significantly chillier Tuesday night, when the lows will barely be in the 50s, but the sun is expected to return Wednesday morning, amid clear skies and temperatures in the breezy 70s for the rest of the day. Lows in the 50s will return Wednesday night, the Gang predicts.
