HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD ACROSS THE NORTHERN BASINS TODAY WITH DRY
WEATHER EXPECTED. A FEW RAINSHOWERS CANNOT BE RULED OUT IN THE JAMES
AND APPOMATTOX BASINS.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL SLIDE OFF THE NEW ENGLAND COAST FRIDAY ALLOWING
MOISTURE TO RETURN TO THE SOUTHERN AND WESTERN BASINS. MUCH OF THE
REGION WILL REMAIN DRY EXCEPT FOR SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN
THE JAMES AND APPOMATTOX BASINS. BASIN AVERAGED RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL BE
LESS THAN ONE QUARTER INCH.

A COLD FRONT WILL APPROACH FROM THE NORTHWEST LATE SATURDAY. SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS MUCH OF THE NORTHERN BASINS LATE
SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.

ON AREA RIVERS AND CREEKS, MINOR STAGE CHANGES CAN BE EXPECTED INTO
SATURDAY. GENERALLY MINOR RISES ARE EXPECTED SUNDAY FOR THE SUSQUEHANNA
AND DELAWARE BASINS.

ALL DAILY RIVER FORECASTS WILL BE AVAILABLE SHORTLY.
