90 Degrees in Reston This Week?

Today may have been a cooler, crisper day, with highs in the low 60s, but according to the Capital Weather Gang, that will likely all be gone by tomorrow.

The Gang predicts Reston could reach the 80s by Tuesday, and possibly hit 90 degrees by Thursday.

With the warmer, dryer temperatures comes an increased risk for fires. The National Weather Service warns that the local area is under a fire warning “due to low dewpoints and a gusty northwest wind.”

By the weekend, temperatures should be back in the 70s, which means a sunny weekend perfect for outdoor activities.

    It could be even hotter since there are fewer trees now and more buildings.

            Not really a getaway though, is it?

      • Why do you bother?

        And retain heat!

    Washington’s weather is underrated, particularly if the last two recent winters are indicative of a trend and not consecutive outliers.

    I wouldn’t want the additional heat that would come from living further south like North Carolina and I wouldn’t want the harsher winters that would come living further north like Boston.

    I am not saying it has the nicest weather. DC weather obviously isn’t anywhere as nice as San Diego weather.

      I agree with your overall stance on this matter, but the last two winters here have essentially stretched well into April via cold, rainy, windy, lousy spring weather. I do like our climate overall, however.

        While I would obviously prefer sunny 70 weather, I don’t mind damp, 45-55 degree days so long as its not too wet. I find that more preferable than 90 degrees and humid.

        When its cold, you can get by outside with a coat and gloves. Once you get inside, you take off your coat and gloves and everything is normal.

        When its humid and muggy, you can’t undo its effects when you are outside, particularly sweating. (Lets not even talk about the fun of getting into a unstarted car that has been baking in the sun) Once you get inside, your sweat is still on your clothes and body.

      The best weather usually occurs during October. If we are lucky, the period can stretch from late September to mid November.

      Long stretches of tranquil weather with high pressure, light winds, warm days, cool nights, low dew points, and with tropical weather and convective threats low.

    “dryer” temperatures? No, we are not that hot.

    And, we were not under a “fire warning” as there is no such product from the National Weather Service. Parts of NoVA were under a fire weather watch. Other areas were under a red flag warning resulting from low dew points (not dewpoints).

    Paging the editor…

    If only RIBS would bring back the heady days of FREE rides on Code Red days.

      I remember those days. Fortunately, I suppose, we don’t have many code red days.

      Today is code orange, though.
