RICHMOND, Va. -- This is an updated post. Central Virginia residents woke up to severe weather Friday morning, including tornado warnings. All tornado warnings expired just before 8 a.m., though severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for many eastern and northern counties.

In the Richmond metro area, during commute time, the biggest remaining threat was standing water and low visibility.

Embedded stronger thunderstorms with gusty winds are possible now through 9 a.m., affecting the metro mostly through 8 a.m. time frame.

While some parts of southeast Virginia are under a Tornado Watch, severe thunderstorm warnings were issued in other Virginia counties.
