Update at 2:00 p.m. — The winter storm warning has been dropped. Arlington is now expected to just get a dusting of snow.
Update at 3:00 a.m. — It now appears that the storm will be smaller than anticipated locally.
The Arlington Office of Emergency Management has broadcast the following alert about the snowstorm that will be impacting the Washington area tomorrow.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for NCR, effective from 6AM Sunday to 6AM Monday. Currently, the anticipated amount of snowfall is 6-7 inches. However, the area is right on the borderline between receiving a direct hit by the storm, and only receiving moderate snow, so anywhere from 3-10 inches should be anticipated. Light snow will start early Sun morning, and become heavier from mid-morning to early evening. High temp 30. Snow will taper off at night, but winds will pick up. Low 23. Monday will provide clearing but with windy conditions, and possibly blowing snow. High 31.
Arlington OEM would like to offer the following tips:
-Drive only if it is absolutely necessary. If you must drive, stay on main roads, and avoid back roads and alleys.
-Avoid overexertion when shoveling snow. Overexertion can bring on a heart attack—a major cause of death during the winter.
-Listen to your radio, television or NOAA Weather Radio for weather reports and emergency information.
-Dress for the weather. Wear several layers of loose fitting, lightweight, warm clothing rather than one layer of heavy clothing. Wear mittens, a hat and cover your mouth with a scarf to protect your lungs.
-Watch for signs of frostbite (skin appears white and waxy, numbness or no feeling) and hypothermia (shivering, confusion or dizziness, slow or slurred speech). Go to a medical facility immediately if you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms.

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.
On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.
Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.
On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
