Rain, storms, wind, and flooding… An area of low pressure will drift north today, over central and eastern Virginia. We will see mostly cloudy skies with showers and storms. Rain will be widespread and heavy at times this morning. Some sunshine will try to blend in and rain will be more scattered for midday and the afternoon. It will be windy again today, especially this morning, with gusts to 30+ mph. Minor tidal flooding is expected near times of high tide, 8 to 9 AM for most locations. Highs will warm into the low 70s this afternoon.

Clouds will stick around with scattered showers and storms this evening. Winds will relax tonight with lows in the upper 50s.

As the low moves up the East Coast, rain will begin to move out Wednesday. Expect mostly cloudy skies in the morning, trending toward partly cloudy in the afternoon. Isolated showers may linger but it will be much less soggy than the past few days. Highs will climb into the mid 70s for Wednesday and warm into the mid 80s with more sunshine to end the work week.
