You’ve undoubtedly noticed, it’s a wet and rainy morning around Reston. Will the rain let up today?

According to the National Weather Service, there’s a chance, but not a big one.

Rain and the chance of thunderstorms is likely until at least 2 p.m. Friday, with the added likelihood of “gusty winds.” Temperatures will mostly remain in the 60s, with a possible high of 73 degrees.

Around mid-afternoon, there is a chance the rain will finally stop between 2 to 4 p.m. Then, the chance of showers tonight goes down to around a 30-percent likelihood. Temperatures tonight will hover in the 50s.

For the weekend, sporadic rain is highly likely. The chance of rain is 70 percent between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, with a mostly clear mid-day leading to a 30-percent chance of rain returning around 8 p.m. Temperatures will linger in the 50s with a high near 64.

Thankfully, it looks like Restonians may be able to enjoy a dry Sunday. There is only a 20-percent chance of showers around 8 a.m. However dry, though, it will likely be an overcast and windy day, with temperatures in the 50s and wind gusts of up to 24 miles per hour.

    Hopefully, not for a while. I have a freshly sodded lawn, so I can use all the rain we can get.

    Hopefully, not for a while. I have a freshly cleared respiratory tract, so I can use all the rain we can get to keep the Pollen Down.
