Tropical moisture will continue to lift northward tonight into
early Monday.  Periods of showers and embedded thunderstorms is
expected, especially across the eastern river basins.  While basin
average rainfall across the eastern river basins is expected to range
from one quarter /0.25/ to one and one quarter /1.25/ inches, locally
higher amounts up to 3 inches will be possible which will lead to
sharp rises on smaller streams and creeks.

The showers and thunderstorms will move east and off the coast
Monday night with the passage of a weak cold front.

MARFC has updated the river and stream forecasts this evening where
needed.  If any WFO`s have any questions, comments or concerns, just
