Hanna will be sliding northward across eastern Virginia Saturday, with the potential for several inches of rainfall. We are fortunate that several dry days have led up to this point, so dry ground should more efficiently be able to handle all of the water. Nevertheless, flood watches have been issued, and there could be localized problems with that depending on how long the heavy rain lasts.
Winds will also be strong, perhaps tropical storm force, along eastern Virginia, generally along coastal areas and adjacent counties. Folks who have interests at the Bay should be aware that this could be a rough one there, with wind and high water swells.
I’ll be updateing with the latest on our main weather discussion page.
