RICHMOND, Va. -- Hurricane Dorian continues to maintain category 2 strength, with max sustained winds of 110 mph.

The storm will take on a more northerly track, and eventually move northeast as it accelerates along the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coasts.

On this track, the Richmond area will experience gusty winds in the range of 30-40 mph and rainfall amounts of up to 1/2″.

The height of the storm will occur between 8 p.m. Thursday and Noon on Friday.

Conditions will worsen the farther east you go from Richmond, with flooding and damaging winds likely across far southeast Virginia.

The coastal areas of the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula will experience flooding from the combination of storm surge ahead of Dorian, and the persistent east-northeasterly winds.

Our weather will settle down Friday afternoon and evening, with quiet weather over the upcoming weekend.
