The main batch of strong to severe storms will exit eastern Virginia by 8 p.m. A few additional isolated showers or storms will be possible from mid-evening through the overnight.

Unlike the past few days, these storms will move more quickly. The muggy conditions will allow for torrential downpours, and some locations may get hit by a few different storm clusters.

A flood watch has been issued for the I-95 corridor and points east. Rainfall totals of 1-3 inches are possible, so areas affected by heavy rain the past two days will flood more easily.
