NATE has weakened significantly this morning down to 45mph sustained winds.
Here's the latest 8am advisory:
Nate is still moving quickly to the NE and will make its way towards the Tennessee Valley this morning and into the afternoon.
The track of the remnant low should take it through the mountains tonight into tomorrow and then up into New York and New England by tomorrow evening. The heaviest rain will stay in western Virginia closer to the Blue Ridge. Lighter rainfall amounts will be seen east of the mountains. Winds will pick up over western parts of the state today and tomorrow with wind gusts of 30+mph possible.
Any rain would be welcome since it's been bone-dry for more than 3 weeks here in central VA. Here's a look at what the radar COULD look like early tomorrow morning based on our short-range RPM model. The heaviest rain will stay focused north and west of Richmond. Hopefully some rain will make its way into central Virginia! The rain we receive will be more scattered and not everyone is going to see it.
We'll continue to monitor the latest tropical system closely and keep you updated frequently on-air, online at nbc12.com and through your NBC12 First Alert Weather App.
