Arlington, VA

(Updated at 1:35 p.m.) After getting drenched by a storm early this morning, Arlington may be getting another round of heavy rain tonight.

The county and the D.C. region is currently under a Flash Flood Watch. Slow-moving storms are expected to form this afternoon, dumping torrential rainfall on ground already saturated by the morning storm and Isaias earlier this week — a recipe for flooding.

The watch is now in effect until 6 a.m. Friday; it was originally set to expire at midnight but was extended Thursday afternoon.

More from the National Weather Service:


Through this evening… Numerous slow moving showers and thunderstorms continue to develop across the region and should expand and redevelop with time. Locations which are repetitively affected could receive multiple-inch rainfall totals. This could lead to rapid rises on streams and flash flooding of low lying areas.

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.
