If you’re looking forward to an end to this week’s steamy weather, there’s good news and bad news.
It seems set to cool down a bit Saturday, but only because rain seems likely to return. Some weather watchers are even calling for downpours and flooding.
A reminder to think twice before hopping on the Metro this weekend, as major track work starts Saturday and lasts for the next two weeks. Sunday’s “Unite the Right 2” rally in D.C. will mean additional headaches for commuters, and D.C. officials are taking precautions to prepare for the arrival of white supremacists downtown. Arlington police say there aren’t any events planned in the county surrounding the event, but some county residents are taking some online action.
