Thunderstorms will continue throughout Saturday in Alexandria, as the remnants of Hurricane Laura — now a tropical storm — moves its way out of the area. The city remains under a hazardous weather outlook all day, according to the National Weather Service.
Tonight, expect scattered showers and thunderstorms before 10 p.m.
“Some of the storms could produce gusty winds,” according to NWS. “Partly cloudy, with a low around 66. Northwest wind 8 to 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%.”
There was a flash flood warning issued yesterday, and it led to some light flooding.
