Arlington, VA

Arlington and other parts of the D.C. area are under a Flash Flood Watch through early Monday morning.

Storms approaching the area might dump 1-2 inches of rain in short order, causing flash flooding, forecasters say.

More from the National Weather Service:

…FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 AM EDT MONDAY… THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN STERLING VIRGINIA HAS ISSUED A * FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR PORTIONS OF MARYLAND, THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, VIRGINIA, AND EASTERN WEST VIRGINIA… SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WITH LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN ARE EXPECTED TO OVERSPREAD THE AREA THIS EVENING AND CONTINUE UNTIL SHORTLY AFTER MIDNIGHT. WITH WET ANTECEDENT CONDITIONS, A RAPIDLY FALLING 1 TO 2 INCHES OF RAIN COULD RESULT IN FLASH FLOODING. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS… A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP THAT LEAD TO FLASH FLOODING. FLASH FLOODING IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION SHOULD FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS BE ISSUED. &&
