An upper level trough brought a few isolated showers and even
a few thunderstorms to the Mid Atlantic Region over the past
24 hours.  The heaviest area of precipitation was confined to
a small section of coastal Delaware.  Precipitation totals from
8am Saturday through 8am Sunday are below.

Weak high pressure will bring fair and dry weather to the entire
Mid Atlantic through 12Z Monday.  A cold front will move from West
to East across the Mid Atlantic Monday accompanied by scattered
showers and thunderstorms.  The best chance of precipitation will
be across parts of interior New York into Pennsylvania.  The cold
front will move offshore Tuesday; however, an upper level trough
will linger and bring the chance of scattered rain showers across
interior New York and northern Pennsylvania Tuesday.

72 hour basin average QPF is expected to range from zero /0.00/
up to perhaps one half /0.50/ inch.  This forecasted precipitation
should have little or no effect on main stem rivers.  As a result
expect main stem rivers and larger tributaries to remain nearly
steady or slowly fall over the next 48 to 72 hours.
