RICHMOND, Va. -- FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT UNTIL 8AM SUNDAY

More rain will be across central Virginia overnight, with locally heavy rain producing more flooding issues. Multiple flood warnings are in effect and a Flash Flood Watch continues through Sunday morning. There is the potential for more locations to get multiple inches of rain overnight. Areas of fog are likely, with lows in the mid and upper 60s.

Bands of heavy rainfall will move across the region through Sunday morning, but the steadier rain should eventually decrease to scattered showers during the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s.

Rain chances will be a bit lower Monday and Tuesday, although a few widely scattered thunderstorms may pop up, particularly on Monday. More scattered storms will be around for the middle and end of the coming week. Highs will bounce back into the 80s.

Tropical Storm Kyle formed off the Mid Atlantic coast on Friday, and it will continue moving away from the USA and stay north of Bermuda.
