RICHMOND, Va. -- The pressure gradient between post-tropical Arthur and strong high pressure over New England is resulting in a northeast wind over Virginia that will persist through tonight. This wind will pile water onto the shoreline, particularly in areas that are exposed to the northeast, resulting in moderate to major flooding of 2-3 feet above normal tide levels. A Coastal Flood Warning remains in effect through Wednesday. The rest of Virginia will experience occasional showers and cool/windy conditions as a strong area of low pressure moves very slowly through Tennessee. Winds will gust to over 30mph at times today. This low will eventually pick up eastward speed by the end of the week, with drier and warmer conditions returning. The Memorial Day weekend should be partly cloudy and seasonably warm, with low rain chances. Stay With CBS 6, The Weather Authority.
