Storms bring heavy rain, wind and flooding on 2/24/16Arlington and the D.C. area is under a Wind Advisory this morning and afternoon.

The wind and rain today is the result of a nor’easter — the kind of coastal storm that has, in years past, drenched the area with rain or covered it with snow.

From the National Weather Service:
