Remnants of Cindy bringing rain to SW VA

We could see our first brush with, now, Tropical Depression Cindy overnight. It won’t be so much on the windy side, but rather the first push of rain that she’ll send our way. While the center of Cindy remains over the south central states at this time, the reach of Cindy is massive.

A few models are hinting that we’ll see an area of rain move into the common wealth overnight. Doesn’t look extremely concerning, and should remain relatively light, but none the less could cause some less than ideal driving conditions overnight.

Friday will be mostly cloudy with a good chance of rain, especially later in the day, and overnight. We may start out dry in spots, but expecting that as the remnants of Cindy moves closer to our area that rain will quickly uptick in coverage and intensity.

The heaviest rainfall, fortunately, looks to take place during the late night hours of Friday and into Saturday morning. That’s good news because most of us will just sleep it off. We’ll have to watch for any flooding potential, but most models suggest that only 1.5” – 2.5” of rain could fall over the course of several hours. Not exactly ideal for major flooding.

On the wind front, we may see a few gusts up to 30-40mph at some of the highest elevations, but I’m thinking that most areas will just notice some breezy conditions at times.

Drier, and somewhat cooler weather moves in behind the rain by Sunday.
