ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Some more showers are on the way this weekend, though Arlington seems set to avoid a total wash-out if you’re trying to get outside.

Storms will stick around tonight, even though more than a foot of rain has already plagued the D.C. region since mid-May, and could make Saturday a bit dreary as well. Sunday, however, should provide a few rays of sun.

Check out our event calendar if you need some ideas about things to do. If you’re headed to downtown Clarendon, be aware that some big drop-off and pick-up changes are now in effect. Or if you’re planning on swinging by the Arlington Cemetery, know that you won’t be able to get there by Metro.

And if you’re the owner of a wayward stuffed rabbit lost at the Taste of Arlington, county officials remain ready to arrange a reunion.

If you’re looking to wait out these storms, check out our most popular stories of the past week:
