PM Update: Flood Watch issued as rain continues

By Ian Livingston

Storm departs in time for mild & breezy Thursday

* Flood Watch for parts of area through Thursday a.m. (see map) *
* December weather: expect anything/everything | Saturday snow? *
* Radar, temps & more: Weather Wall | Traffic | Get There *

Rain that arrived during the midday has been moderate to heavy at times this evening. In the wake of a wet October and November, some flooding isn't out of the question. Remember not to drive onto water-covered roadways. Evening temperatures have risen through the 50s as relatively warm air pushes into the area out ahead of the storm's low-pressure center passing to our west.

Radar: Latest regional radar shows movement of precipitation over past three hours. Powered by HAMweather. Refresh page to update. Click here or on image to enlarge. Or see radar bigger on our Weather Wall.

Tonight: Rain diminishes overnight and temperatures stay mild, in the mid-50s to near 60. Additional rain totals should be less than 1" in most places.

Tomorrow (Thursday): Any remaining showers are likely out of here by sunrise and clouds break early leading to a fairly nice (if somewhat windy) day Thursday. Look for partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. West winds could gust up to 25 mph or higher.

A Tornado Watch went up at 9 am for southeastern Virginia and the lowermost Eastern Shore of Maryland. Is there any chance of a watch for our area?

Tonight's early model trends are good for wintry weather fans... I'll join in in hoping it holds.
