Get ready for more serious weather, as the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch in Alexandria. The advisory is in effect until 2 p.m. Friday.

Humid conditions will result in showers and scattered thunderstorms in the evening hours, the National Weather Service tweeted.

According to NWS:

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected.
  Although isolated thunderstorms capable of heavy rain are possible
  this evening near and southwest of the DC metro area, the bulk of
  the threat is expected to be overnight into Friday morning.
  Thunderstorms may be capable of producing heavy rainfall of 1 to 2
  inches per hour.
