The calendar turned to fall a few days back, but the weather is finally starting to reflect the change in season.
Starting today and moving into this weekend, cool and breezy conditions are on the way in Arlington. Outside of some scattered showers Saturday morning, the D.C. region also seems set to stay pretty dry in the wake of Hurricane Michael.
That should surely be good news for anyone headed outside to the Virginia Wine Festival in Rosslyn, or any of the other events around the county this weekend.
You can also use the weekend to catch up on some of our most popular stories of the past week:
