FLASH FLOOD watch Wednesday. Here's the latest

Showers likely Wednesday morning, evening

(WWBT) - There is light at the end of this rainy tunnel, with Today expected to be the last day of this latest wet period of weather, with a few heavy showers or storms mainly during the afternoon and evening.

Flash flood Watches are continued mainly for eastern Virginia and parts of Northwestern VA through Wednesday evening.  The flash flood watch is in effect in case an area that got heavy rain yesterday or over the weekend gets a downpour that doesn't have time to soak in.

The humidity will remain very high and there could still be some isolated, localized areas of flooding with any heavier showers Wednesday.

After Wednesday, drier weather will attempt a rather feeble comeback Thursday and Friday, as yet another extended period of showery days will resume this weekend through early next week.

Rainfall totals for the year for Richmond, as of this update, now exceed thirty nine inches!!!! The normal for an entire year is a shade above 43". This remarkably wet 2018 is on track to potentially break even more records.
