NWS Issues Flash Flood Watch for Alexandria | Fireman Mike | Old Town Post

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a flash flood watch for Alexandria and surrounding areas from until 7:00 p.m. on February 21, 2016.

NWS advised that a small but potent low pressure system will move across the area today.  A band of moderate to heavy rain is expected. Rainfall amounts may exceed 1 inch in just a few hours.  Due to saturated soils from recent rain and snowfall the risk of flash flooding is present.

A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding.  Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
