There is a large upper level low moving in overhead. These will continue the scattered showers and storms in the region. The heaviest rain is forecast to fall north and west of Hampton Roads. The system will linger into tomorrow and also on Saturday. It should lose its influence on Sunday, but isolated showers may fall early. Stay tuned for updates.
Nuisance tidal flooding will occur again tonight between 9pm and midnight.
Hurricane Matthew is down in the eastern Caribbean moving westward. It will likely strengthen in the next 24-48 hours and may become a category 2 hurricane in that time. It will likely take a turn to the north in a couple of days. Many models have it crossing either Cuba or Haiti, and then getting into the Bahamas as a hurricane. There is a high amount of uncertainty by that point. Stay tuned for updates.
