After the weekend wallop that brought some parts of central Virginia nearly four inches of rain, another storm is now eyeing our area. This energetic and moisture-rich system will approach Virginia by Wednesday afternoon and that's when the raindrops will begin to fall. Right now it appears that the heaviest rain will be late Wednesday night and into Thursday morning. With the ground already saturated from the recent rain, it won't take much to cause flooding concerns. With current forecasts calling for anywhere between one and two inches of rain, this will bring some rivers to the top of their banks.
If you live near a stream, creek, or a river, be advised that minor to moderate river flooding could occur. This threat won't end with the last raindrop on Thursday, but will continue into the weekend as water continues to drain off into the rivers. Once this system departs, skies will clear and temperatures will warm for Friday and the following weekend.
