Weather Cancels Rosslyn Outdoor Movie

By Katie Pyzyk - ARLNow.com

Friday - 7/20/2012, 3:45pm  ET

Rosslyn’s Outdoor FilmFest movie, “Dave”, will be canceled tonight because of expected rain and thunderstorms throughout the evening.

Weather permitting, the screening of “Swing Vote” will still take place next Friday (July 27) as scheduled.

The region is still under a flash flood watch from the National Weather Service until 11:00 p.m.

WIDESPREAD RAINFALL RATES OF ONE TO TWO INCHES PER HOUR CAN BE
EXPECTED FROM AFTERNOON AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS.

EXCESSIVE RAINFALL COULD CAUSE CREEKS AND STREAMS TO RISE
QUICKLY OUT OF THEIR BANKS AND COULD FLOOD LOW-LYING AND URBAN
AREAS…PARTICULARLY THOSE THAT HAVE HAD RECENT SIGNIFICANT
RAINFALL.

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.
