Wind Advisory in effect today

A brief bout of flurries earlier this morning was the last precipitation to fall as a result of our latest winter storm. Now comes the wind.

A Wind Advisory is now in effect, until 10 p.m. tonight. Gusty winds up to 55 mph could bring down waterlogged trees and branches, knocking out power.

As of publication there are no outages of note in Arlington, though the wind should be its gustiest in the afternoon and evening hours.
