The National Weather Service has extended a flash flood watch through 8 p.m. Wednesday for Hampton Roads, including Williamsburg and James City and York counties.

Recent rains have saturated the ground across the region, and more showers are expected Tuesday night into early Wednesday, according to the weather service’s Wakefield office.

The weather service warns that while areas along creeks and streams are most vulnerable to flash flooding, it can occur in almost any area.

The forecast for the Williambsurg area calls for a chance of showers and thunderstorms through the weekend. Highs will be in the 80s and 90s with lows in the 70s.
