Alexandrians should brace for a stormy weekend.
Rain is likely to kick off tonight after 11 p.m. and there’s a good chance it will continue through the weekend as a tropical storm approaches Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service.
Tropical storm conditions are possible Saturday night. Between 1 and 2 inches of rainfall is expected.
“Widespread rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected, with localized amounts up to 5 inches possible,” the National Weather Service said in an advisory today. “This may result in isolated instances of flooding, especially for low lying and flood prone areas. The heaviest rain is most likely to occur Saturday into Saturday night.”
Some of that rain is expected to continue into Sunday, with showers before 8 a.m.
The storm’s already had an impact on some Alexandria events. The first “Rock the Block” for the Eisenhower Corridor is being postponed thanks to the storm.
Sandbags are also being distributed for Old Town Businesses today from 2-3 p.m.
