RICHMOND, Va. -- Areas hit by flooding on Friday and Saturday will continue to experience flooding into Monday morning. The National Weather Service's coastal flood warning continues until 6 a.m. Monday.
High tide cycles will provide the period of maximum flooding. Locations near the Chesapeake Bay and the York and Rappahannock rivers will continue to be impacted.
Although Hurricane Joaquin is moving away from the United States, the wind flow from Joaquin and an area of low pressure near South Carolina both continue to send strong wind gusts against the east coast shoreline, which produces high waves and increases water levels around high tide. Winds and waves will decrease during Monday, and flooding issues should begin to ease Monday into Tuesday.
The James River will crest near or just below flood stage by Sunday night, and will begin falling Monday.
