Rain and wind associated with Hurricane Ian are expected to ramp up tonight in the D.C. area, but the biggest local impacts might be on your weekend plans.
Already a number of Arlington events have been modified or rescheduled, including:
- The National Landing Oktoberfest, now rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 22
- The Plan Langston Blvd Walking Tour this Saturday, the start of which has been relocated to inside 4500 Langston Blvd
- The Paws on the Pike pet fair, now rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 8
No land-based watches or warnings have been issued for Arlington ahead of the storm, so far, but a Gale Warning has been issued for watercraft on the Potomac. Wind gusts of up to 40 mph are expected between 8 p.m. tonight and 6 a.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.
Rain from the storm system could last all weekend and drag into Tuesday, but after an extended stretch of dry weather little to no flooding is expected locally.
Still, authorities are asking Arlington residents to be prepared just in case.
Heavy rains and wind are expected this weekend due to #HurricaneIan. Prepare now:
