Latest Warnings & Storm Total Rainfall

Flood Warnings remain in effect for many counties in Central Virginia until further notice. The widespread heavy rain event is beginning to wind down, but there are still gusty winds and light rain and drizzle affection the region from that coastal low pressure system off of the Outer Banks. High pressure remains stubbornly parked over New England, and that pressure difference between the northern High and the coastal Low are still creating gusty winds along the Mid-Atlantic coastline. A Wind Advisory remains in effect for the eastern Peninsulas and the Chesapeake Bay to the Virginia Atlantic Coastline for gusts around 40mph.

Here are the peak recorded wind gusts from the event (these occurred Thursday):
Oceana 75mph
