ARLnow Weekend Discussion

The D.C. region seems set to miss the worst of Hurricane Florence’s rain and wind this weekend, so don’t go clearing out the grocery store shelves just yet.

In fact, the forecast is calling for only isolated showers between tonight and Sunday. While Arlington might see some stronger storms early next week, the storm’s southerly track should keep us relatively dry this weekend.

Even still, county officials are urging people to use caution. Many outdoor events have been called off or pushed back as well — check our event calendar for the latest details.

And if you’re behind on what’s going on around Arlington, here’s a look at our most popular stories of the last week:

  4. Arlington County Urges Residents to Be Prepared for Hurricane Florence
  5. Man Shot by Arlington Police Claims Officers Opened Fire as He Tried to Surrender

Head down to the comments to discuss these stories, your hurricane-adjusted weekend plans or anything else local. Have a great weekend, and stay dry!
