An stagnant pattern has finally reached our tipping point as the conveyor belt of rain continues in the region. There is a Flash Flood warning for the region into the afternoon from South Boston to Roanoke. Over two inches of rain has fallen in the area and more is on the way. Although the streams and creeks are running over their banks the main stem rivers have yet to be impacted greatly, but that will change.
