The remnants of Hurricane Nicole are heading our way, meaning a soggy and stormy Veterans Day is on tap.
The rain will start falling early Friday morning. Downpours and gusty winds are expected to follow as the day goes on, before the skies clear Saturday.
Officials are encouraging local residents to get ready now, clearing leaves from storm drains and gutters.
The storm will make for some large, soggy leaf piles on the side of the road. Arlington County does not start its vacuum leaf collection process until next week.
So far, no watches or warnings have been issued for the county. Nicole is packing a threat of localized flooding and isolated tornadoes, but Arlington is outside of the zones where those threats are most likely.

With remnants of Nicole arriving for the long weekend, now's a good time to clear gutters and downspouts. And if you see leaves covering a nearby storm drain, maybe sink your claws into that too? A grateful County thanks you. https://t.co/WXgcXEaV2J pic.twitter.com/XJyOdqSKhs
