WEATHER: Flash Flood Watch is in effect until Midnight for western Virginia
RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until Midnight for western Virginia. Local heavy downpours are expected out of thunderstorms that should impact this part of the state Monday afternoon and evening. The ground remains saturated in the Watch area after recent rounds of rain.
The atmosphere continues to remain moist enough to create heavy downpours, and we’ll get extra lift support today provided by an approaching upper-level trough and the short-wave energy accompanying it from the northwest. This system will keep decent storm chances in our forecast into Tuesday, as well, but shift east a bit more into central Virginia by Tuesday afternoon and evening.
