A cold front will continue drop southward overnight as
waves of low pressure ripple east-northeast along the
front.  As colder air works southward expect a slow and
gradual changover from rain to sleet and snow from north
to south across West Virginia, Maryland, Southern
Pennsylvania into New Jersey.  Further south into Virginia
expect periods of rain through 12Z Thursday.

24 hour basin average QPF (water equivalents) ending 00Z
Friday are expected to range from zero /0.00/ across
interior New York up to one and one quarter /1.25/ inches.
The highest QPF is expected across Eastern West Virginia
into Virginia.

MARFC is running the Hydrologic model at this time and
River and Stream forecasts will be updated as needed.
If any WFO`s have any questions or concerns, just call
MARFC.
