Portions of Northern Virginia including the Tysons area will be under a Flash Flood Watch starting Tuesday afternoon.
The National Weather Service said that the watch will be in effect from 3-11 p.m. Forecasters say that storms and gusty wind are expected today.
More from NWS:
A slow-moving cold front will intersect a hot and humid air mass resulting in scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms late this afternoon and evening. Multiple rounds of thunderstorms are possible, which could result in isolated rainfall amounts of 2 to 3 inches in a short amount of time. These rainfall amounts may result in rapid rises of water on small streams and creeks, as well as in urban and poor drainage areas.
Sct'd showers & t'storms this afternoon/evening may contain gusty winds, flooding rain and frequent lightning, especially east of the Blue Ridge into the DC metro. pic.twitter.com/WQZhOwBAwL
