Hurricane Zeta made landfall along the southeast coast of Louisiana last evening, but it’s catching a ride on the jet stream and moving quickly toward our area. The rain will be moderate to heavy at times today and a Flood Watch is in effect until late tonight. We may end up seeing 2 to 3 inches of rain with the heaviest being just south of D.C.

It will also be chilly and breezy with high temperatures only in the upper 50s to low 60s. If you’re traveling south through Virginia or North Carolina, stronger tropical storm force winds may be felt across southwest Virginia and western North Carolina.

The rain may taper to showers this evening, but those showers also look to linger through Friday morning before we dry out and get ready for a potentially frosty start to Halloween morning.
