UPDATE: Tropical Storm warning canceled for eastern Virginia

5:13 p.m. -- The National Weather Service has canceled a tropical storm warning for central and eastern Virginia,  northeast North Carolina and the lower eastern shore of Maryland.

All watches and warnings associated with the storm have also been canceled, according to an update on the National Weather Service's website. Conditions in Virginia and Maryland are continuing to improve, the weather service said.

But there is still a flood advisory for these areas through noon on Tuesday, which means that minor to moderate flooding could happen in low-lying areas near the water. 

As of 5 p.m., Tropical Storm Hermine was 340 miles east-southeast of Ocean City, Md. and is moving northeast at 5 mph, according to the weather service. 

6:24 a.m. -- While there were no wind- or rain-related threats for the Peninsula on Sunday from Tropical Storm Hermine, a potential remains for significant flooding during hide tide. 

The storm is expected to move slowly to the northeast this morning, then track north-northwest Sunday night, according to the National Weather Service. 

Areas that are close to the water or are low-lying could see a potential for 1 to 3 feet of tidal flooding, according to a tropical storm update from the National Weather Service on Sunday morning.

High tide, when flooding is most likely, is expected anywhere between 11 a.m. and noon throughout the Peninsula, said Bridget De Rosa, National Weather Service meteorologist. 

High tide at Sewell's Point at the James River will be around 11:47 a.m., De Rosa said.

The threat for flooding will last through Tuesday morning, according to the weather service. As of 6 a.m., all major streets on the Peninsula were reported as passable. 

The weather service has advised people to stay away from flooding-prone areas -- particularly, anywhere near the water. 

The good news, according to the weather service, is that there is no significant rainfall or damaging wind gusts expected on Sunday.

That doesn't mean it won't be windy. Gusts are expected to reach 35 miles per hour, with speeds between 15 and 25 mph, forecasters predict.

The high temperature will be 75 degrees on Sunday, with a 20 percent chance for showers tonight. The day will be mostly cloudy.
