RICHMOND, Va. -- Tropical Storm Elsa made landfall on the North Gulf Coast of Florida, bringing very heavy rainfall. The system will now accelerate and weaken as it moves through the Southeast, the Carolinas, and over southeast Virginia.

The main impact to the Commonwealth will be midday Thursday through Thursday night, based on the current track, with a swath of one to three-inch rainfall totals.

A low-end threat for damaging winds and tornadoes will exist over southeast Virginia.

Friday and Saturday will be typical July days, with highs in the upper 80s and low 90s.
