RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Tropical Storm Olga is a Post-Tropical Cyclone Saturday morning as the system gets absorbed into low over Southeastern U.S.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) initiated updates on Tropical Depression #17 early Friday, and upgraded it to Tropical Storm Olga later in the day. While it is expected to stay relatively weak Saturday, its interaction occurring with another system over the Southern Plains will make it a substantial rainfall-producer for parts of the Deep South and Mississippi Valley into the weekend.

Impacts for Virginia will be slow to occur, with Sunday rain likely as a cold front helps carry the precipitation east. However, the track of the remnant tropical system is expected to move north and not directly into the Eastern U.S.
