A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
Richmond is removing some controversial speed bumps from a street that runs off the Eastern By-Pass.
The speed bumps were installed last year along North Porter Drive, after some people complained about cars going through the area too fast.
But now, the city has decided that emergency vehicles have difficulty going over the bumps, so they're removing them.
The city will install a three-way stop sign where North Porter intersects with Barnes Mill Road.
