    A stormy Monday afternoon will bridge a March-like weekend with July temperatures by midweek, according to Storm Team4.

    Storms quickly moved through the area late Monday afternoon, prompting a few severe thunderstorm warnings. There were reports of hail and wind gusts up to 50 mph. 

    The rain delayed the start of the Washington Nationals game Monday evening.

    Monday marked 19 days with at least a trace of precipitation at Reagan National Airport in May, according to Storm Team4. 

    But the skies should clear Monday night, with a huge break in the cold, wet weather by the middle of the week that may have us feeling like it’s summertime.

    Last weekend’s damp weather, with temperatures hovering in the mid-50s, felt more like early March than late May. Temperatures will skyrocket into the low-to-mid-80s by Wednesday, which we’re used to seeing in July.
