Rain, Wind Causes Scattered Problems

Miserable weather led to scattered problems across Arlington last night.

Steady rains caused some localized flooding in parts of the county. Police reportedly had to block off 11th Street at North Kennebec Street last night due to water in the roadway. A big pool of standing water also caused a traffic hazard on the northbound lanes of Glebe Road, just before Wilson Boulevard.

Local streams filled with fast-moving water as a result of the rain. This video shows a normally-peaceful section of Four Mile Run that turned into a raging rapid near Shirlington.

Elsewhere in Arlington, gusty winds brought down trees and power lines.

A brief period of sleet, meanwhile, made its way through the area around midnight. There was no noticeable accumulation in Arlington.
