***A Coastal Flood Statement is in effect for Gloucester, Middlesex, Mathews, York, Newport News, Hampton and Poquoson for this afternoon and early evening. Water levels on the western Chesapeake Bay and tidal rivers will approach minor flooding levels during hours surrounding high tide.***

The first day of fall is going to look and feel a lot like the last day of summer. Expect clouds, wind, showers and flooding at times of high tide.

The area of low pressure bringing us the stormy weather continues to churn off the coast to our south. That is bringing us gusty northeast winds, plenty of cloud cover, and showers from time to time.

Scattered showers are likely on Wednesday, especially in the afternoon. Expect high temperatures in the mid to upper 70s.

The forecast is much the same for Thursday and again on Friday.

That area of low pressure may even stick around for the weekend. Right now it looks like a good chance for rain on Saturday and a slight chance on Sunday, with high temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
