So far Arlington has dodged the worst of Hurricane Ida’s remnants this afternoon, but the storm system is still having some local impacts.
With a Flash Flood Watch and a Tornado Watch still in effect, Arlington Public Schools cancelled all afternoon and evening activities on school grounds.
All activities scheduled in Arlington Public Schools or on school grounds for this afternoon and evening are canceled, due to inclement weather, including extracurricular activities, athletics, team practices, adult education classes, field trips, after-school programs, and other school-based activities. The afternoon Extended Day Program will remain open until 6 p.m. Extended Day requests families pick up students as early as possible. We will continue to monitor the weather and provide updates as necessary.
Also closing early: county-run Covid testing, rec centers and activities.
ALERT: Parks and Recreation will be closing centers & cancelling activities beginning at 4 p.m. on Wed., Sept. 1 due to the impending storm.#arlingtonva

Arlington is within an area identified as a tornado risk, but the heavy storm activity has been mostly concentrated in Maryland near the bay. A tornado ripped through Annapolis and nearby communities within the past hour, causing damage.

Arlington has seen heavy rain this afternoon, which — after the downpours that accompanied a severe storm overnight — has caused some local streams to swell. No major flooding has been reported in the county.

On-and-off rain showers are expected to continue into the evening, before ending by early morning Thursday. Additional storms are also possible around dinnertime.
Models have maybe one final round worth watching between about 5-8pm for tornado risks but things should steadily become calmer through the evening hours with lighter rains ending around midnight. Hang in there folks!! We’re making it. Stay safe ⛈ pic.twitter.com/CGIfZprmDs

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.
On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.
Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.
On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
