An upper level low will wobble across eastern Maryland and
Delaware through 12Z Sunday.  Periods of rain will continue
wrap westward with time with the heaviest rainfall expected
across MARFC`s eastern River basins southward into the
tidewater of the Chesapeake.  a Cold front will drop
southeastward across the Mid Atlantic Saturday night into
Sunday and kick the upper level low pressure offshore.

Forecasted 72 hour basin average rainfall across MARFC`s
hydrologic service area is expected to range from a tenth
/0.10/ inch up to one and one half /1.50/ inches.  The
highest amount of precipitation is expected to fall across
the tributaries across SE PA, including eastern MD, into
DE.

MARFC Hydrologists are issuing river and stream forecasts
at this time.  If any WFO`s have any questions, comments
or concerns just call MARFC.
