The National Weather Service wants people in Fairfax County to prepare for storms today (Monday).

The area is under a Flash Flood Watch from 3-9 p.m. and a Severe Thunderstorm Watch from now until 11 p.m.

More from NWS about the Flash Flood Watch:

Thunderstorms will develop this afternoon and continue this evening along the I-95 corridor. Some areas may experience multiple thunderstorms through this evening.
