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. * Heavy rainfall may result in rapid rises on streams, creeks, and in urban and poor drainage areas. This will especially be the case where repetitive or persistent thunderstorm activity occurs.
A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for portions of the area from 2 AM Friday through Friday PM. Showers and scattered thunderstorms may produce heavy rain, which could lead to instances of flash flooding in the watch area. #TurnAroundDontDrown pic.twitter.com/5aLcDNkIxN
