National Weather Service warns of hazardous conditions today and tonight in Alexandria

Last night’s storms might only be the start, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

The city has had a rainy few weeks and now, the NWS says there’s a “hazardous weather outlook” in effect today and tonight for much of the region. NWS said the primary threat is damaging winds, but other threats include possible tornadoes and large hail.

“Numerous severe thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon and evening,” the NWS said. “Damaging winds will be the primary threat, some of these winds may become locally destructive. Additionally, a few tornadoes and large hail are possible. Isolated to scattered instances of flooding are also possible.”

The forecast calls for scattered showers and thunderstorms between 2-5 p.m.

“Scattered showers and thunderstorms between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., then showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 5 p.m.” the forecast said. “Some storms could be severe, with damaging winds and heavy rain. High near 91. South wind 9 to 13 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.”

That’s expected to continue tonight from 8 p.m.-2 a.m. with heavy rainfall, but the good news is it’s expected to be partly sunny tomorrow and Wednesday.
