It Could Be A Rainy Weekend in Reston

Though originally Restonians were promised a mild, sunny weekend with temps in the 70s–after enduring several days of 80- to 90-degree heat–it looks like the weather forecast has taken a rather damp turn.

The Capital Weather Gang predicts a strong likelihood of storms that could begin as soon as Friday night, and make periodic appearances throughout the weekend, though the schedule is anything but concrete.

“Some shower activity seems unavoidable, but we should have dry intervals, too. Our best advice is to stay flexible and have a Plan B for anything outside,” says The Gang.

The highest chances of rain, including possible thunder and heavy downpours, appears to be between Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon, with a chance of drying out by Sunday evening.

“Timing is fluid and subject to change,” the Gang explains.

Western Maryland and West Virginia are more directly in the path of the approaching storm front. The Gang says it is still possible that it will miss the greater D.C. area if the front “loses steam” before it reaches us.
