Expect a chilly, rainy Monday in the DMV. Be mindful of your surroundings.


  • Be careful driving to work this morning, Washington. The National Weather Service issued a flood watch for most of the D.C. area through 5 a.m.

  • Capitals victory parade will take place Tuesday beginning at 11 a.m. on Constitution Avenue, followed by a rally on the National Mall. The permit application submitted to the National Park Service expects more than 100,000 attendees. One local isn’t too happy with the decision to hold it during business hours—she can’t miss work.

  • While D.C. claims its tree canopy has increased three percent over the last 13 years, a new study questions those findings. The city lost 850 acres of tree cover between 2010 and 2015, and D.C.’s “loss of urban forest was among the highest of any jurisdiction over the five-year ­period” compared to other states.
