RICHMOND, Va. -- The latest track from the National Hurricane Center keeps Hurricane Joaquin over water and has been shifted even farther east. It’s still a little too early to say we are completely out of the woods, but trends are heavily in our favor for a quieter weekend. In the near term, flooding will be an issue on Friday and part of Saturday, with 2 to 5 inches of rainfall across most of Virginia, and moderate to major coastal flooding for the second consecutive weekend. Click here to use Interactive Hurricane Tracker and scroll down for live Hurricane Joaquin updates.

The latest track of Joaquin from the NHC remains over water and has been shifted even farther east, despite a westward shift from the 00Z operational NAM and GFS (granted the GFS wasn’t available prior to the 11 PM NHC advisory). It’s still a little too early to say we are completely out of the woods, but trends are heavily in our favor for a quieter weekend. ~ Zach
