A quick-moving area of low pressure will push across the Tennessee Valley toward the Carolinas late tonight, bringing some light mixed precipitation to our area late tonight into Monday morning. This will result in a very light snow accumulation of one inch or less, mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces along and north of US-460 and the lower eastern shore.

Good morning! The remnants of #Zeta will be moving across the region today. Winds will ramp up quickly on the heels of exiting rainfall this afternoon. The Wind Advisory has been expanded a tier of counties farther north. Wind gusts of 40-50 mph are expected in these areas.

Hurricane Zeta is expected to make landfall near New Orleans later today. Zeta will weaken to a remnant low pressure as it tracks across the Mid-Atlantic. We can expect gusty winds Thursday afternoon and evening. Heaviest rain will be north of Richmond and across MD Eastern Shore

Now is the time to start preparing for potential impacts from Tropical Storm Zeta this Thursday.

Now is the time to start preparing for potential impacts from Tropical Storm Zeta this Thursday.

...ZETA HEADED FOR THE YUCATAN PENINSULA...

- A Hurricane Warning continues for the Yucatan Peninsula from Tulum to Dzilam and Cozumel. Hurricane conditions are expected there by late today. A dangerous storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 2 to 4 feet above normal tide levels along the immediate coast in the Hurricane Warning area near and to the north of where the center makes landfall in the Yucatan Peninsula.

- A Tropical Storm Warning continues for Pinar del Rio Cuba, and for Mexico from south of Tulum to Punta Allen and from west of Dzilam to Progreso. Tropical storm conditions are expected within the Tropical Storm Warning area of Mexico by late today, and could occur in the warning area of western Cuba beginning later today. For storm information specific to your area, please monitor products issued by your national meteorological service.

- Watches will likely be required for a portion of the northern Gulf Coast later today.

At 1 p.m. CDT, the center of Tropical Storm Zeta was located over the northwestern Caribbean Sea about 120 miles (190 km) southeast of Cozumel, Mexico. Zeta is moving toward the northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h). On the forecast track, the center will move near or over the northern Yucatan Peninsula later today or tonight, move over the southern Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, and then approach the northern Gulf Coast on Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center. Strengthening is forecast, and Zeta is expected to become a hurricane later today. Some weakening is likely while Zeta moves over the Yucatan Peninsula tonight and early Tuesday. Zeta is forecast to strengthen again while it moves over the southern Gulf of Mexico later on Tuesday.

Rainfall totals of 4 to 8 inches, with local amounts of 12 inches, are possible through Tuesday along and east-northeast of Zeta's track across the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, the CaymanIslands, and central to western Cuba.

Zeta is forecast to be at or near hurricane strength when it approaches the northern Gulf Coast on Wednesday, and there is an increasing risk of dangerous storm surge, wind, and rainfall impacts from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle. Residents in these areas should monitor the progress of Zeta, as Hurricane and Storm Surge watches will likely be issued later today.

The next complete advisory will be issued by NHC at 4 p.m. CDT - www.hurricanes.gov

Very surprised there isn't a more current update on this FB page
Hello, I will be at the Convention Center for support of the Incident Management Team. Please let me know where this event is taking place and where should park. Thank you.
Had a great time at the Bellwood Community Day yesterday!
FYI!
Fellow CERTS, check your fire extinguishers, you can receive replacements if yours are under the recall notice. Also, just a good time to check and make sure all your extinguishers are charged and not expired. Stay safe, y'all!
Thanks to Chesterfield county; all of the facilitators, traininers, Fire & EMS members and to my graduating CERT Community Emergency Response Team classmates! Awesome job, well informed and thanks for the experience. The works far from over.
Excited to do CPR-AED at the end of the month :-)
