Keep an eye on the roads — the National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Arlington through 6:30 p.m. tonight (Tuesday).
The weather service estimates the D.C. region could see up to two inches of rain in total tonight, though storms are supposed to move out of the area quickly.
The flooding has already prompted some road closures, including on the G.W. Parkway, which county police say is closed in both directions:
