Spin from Florence's remnant vortex and an invasion of dry air from the west stoked a mini-tornado outbreak in Richmond, reminiscent of Ivan in 2004.

Huge hurricane rainfall keeps happening as storms slow down, grow larger, and draw in more water.

Showers and storms will be most numerous in our eastern areas as the remnants of Florence finally pull away.

Another round of showers and storms are possible this afternoon. Sunnier skies rebound tomorrow and linger through the workweek.

A flooding downpour or two is possible as Florence’s remnants sweep by.

'This isn't a river ... it's Interstate 40,' tweeted the North Carolina transportation department, as it shared the stunning footage.

The severe weather risk is down tonight, but downpours and some rumbles remain possible.

Storms killed at least one person in the Richmond area Monday as the remnants of Hurricane Florence swept through the Mid-Atlantic.

Five dozen river locations were in flood stage Monday morning, 18 of which were in major flooding, which is typically characterized by catastrophic property inundation and evacuations.

Much quieter weather and finally some sunshine later this week.

The devastating rain event will only slowly relent in southeast North Carolina as it pushes toward the Appalachians and eventually the Northeast.

The former hurricane will drop a lot of rain in the Appalachians and will kick-start some showers and thunderstorms locally.

This historic, life-threatening rain event is likely to spur record river flooding and, in the mountains, could cause landslides.

Showers related to the remnants of Florence will start to impact our area by tomorrow night.

Be sure to hold your hand against your head lest the howling wind blow your I.F.B. out of your ear.

Showers from Florence's outer bands should stay well south of us on Saturday.

Two anchors, the station's chief meteorologist and a weatherman, stuck it out as long as they could before leaving the building as the live broadcast continued to roll.
