Heaviest rainfall in a month moves through Thursday

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

An area of low pressure will track from the deep south through the Commonwealth during Thursday into Thursday night.  We will see occasional rainfall much of the day, and the rain will be heavy at times.  A few thunderstorms are possible, mostly across far southeastern Virginia.

Rainfall amounts will be in the 0.50" to 1.00" range for much of the area.  Isolated heavier amounts will be possible, with the best chance of that occurring over southeastern Virginia.  This will be the heaviest rainfall since we received 1.01" on November 19.
