The snow melted away this week, allowing Arlington to venture back out between winter storms.

Schools returned from a bonus snow week of winter break, although many have been sent back home to isolate due to a rise in Covid cases in schools. With only one more snow day allotment left, students and teachers at least have MLK Day as a buffer from expected winter weather this Sunday night. Check back with us over the weekend to get the latest on road conditions and closures.

Now, here are the most-read Arlington articles of the past week.

  1. Neighbors ask county to reconsider dense residential development planned for Pentagon City
  2. Covid cases hit new record in Arlington, but test positivity rate starts to trend down
  3. Today is the 40th anniversary of the 14th Street Bridge plane crash that killed 78 people
  4. Police: Man armed with gun took cash from tip jar in Rosslyn
