Tropical Storm Ophelia is moving inland and bringing more rain to the Richmond area, according to a National Weather Service meteorologist.

Meteorologist Ryan Rogers said Saturday evening that the tropical storm warnings were dropped. Some areas might experience some minor to moderate flooding during the current tide cycle, but the weather appears to be clearing up.

Most of the rain is expected to stick to the I-95 corridor Sunday morning.


Winds are expected to stay in the 15 to 20 miles per hour range with some gusts hitting the upper 20s.
