Flash Flood Watch in effect in Alexandria until midnight

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Alexandria and the surrounding area until midnight.

An incoming cold front could result in two-to-four inches of rain from thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening, according to NWS.

“Because of the slow motion and ample moisture in the atmosphere, storms may drop 2 to 4 inches of rain in a short period of time, resulting in flash flooding,” NWS said in the advisory.

NWS continued, “Heavy rainfall in a short amount of time can result in rapid rises of water in streams, creeks, and urban areas.”

Alexandria was beset by flooding events last summer, prompting the city to buckle down on mitigation projects.
