It was a busy news week in Arlington, and next week — with County Board meetings on tap today and Tuesday — should stay busy.
For those who have been enjoying the summer-like weather recently, meanwhile, bad news: it’s not going to last. Expect fall to arrive this afternoon.
If you have outdoor plans in the DC area Saturday afternoon between 1 and 5p, be prepared for gusty downpours, maybe some thunder. Should not last too long but could be disruptive.
