Default [Q] OTA for a rooted device

I'm running stock, but unlocked and rooted with TWRP. Normally I love the custom roms, but at the moment I'm in the mood for stock on this Nexus 5.

My question is, if an OTA comes out, will the phone even try or will it just avoid it?

I'm not concerned with losing root, I'm only concerned with not getting the OTA. Would I just wait for someone to package it up and install it by hand, or would I need to revert the bootloader and get the OTA that way? Basically how do you rooted stock folks manage to get updates is what I'm trying to find out.
