Winds Picking Up, Trees Falling Down

The combination of high winds and heavy, wet snow is already starting to topple large branches and whole trees in the Arlington area.

Wind gusts in excess of 30 miles per hour are currently being recorded at Reagan National Airport. Along with the wind have come reports of downed trees and downed power lines. At least one tree was reported to have caught on fire after falling on live wires.

As of 3:00 AM, Dominion Power was reporting 44,849 outages throughout Northern Virginia. Several hundred of those outages were in Arlington.
