First Nor’easter brings a drenching rain

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The First Alert Weather Day continues Friday night for rain, heavy at times.

Here is the set up with the nor’easter building into early Saturday, moving east of Virginia early in the day.

Here is the model forecast for early Saturday morning showing some lingering lighter rain.

Rainfall, while heavy at times, should be below flooding criteria due to the fast movement of the storm, but we’ll monitor for any changes. Amounts of 1-2″ will be likely over some parts of central Virginia, with heavier totals more likely across eastern and southeastern Virginia.

There are Gale Warnings and Small Craft Advisories for the coastal areas as shown in this map
