Rain Totals from Saturday Storms
A few thunderstorms developed this afternoon in parts of Central Virginia, including a severe thunderstorm that affected Spotsylvania County and blew over ten trees near Gatewood. Locally heavy rainfall occurred with that storm, leading up to about 0.4" of accumulation. Another thunderstorm tracked along and north of I-64, just missing Richmond, late this afternoon. This storm was not as strong as the earlier northern storm, but it still produced about a quarter inch of rain or less and knocked out power to some customers as a result of lightning.
