Except for a few light showers across headwater points of
the North Branch Susquehanna, expect a mainly fair and
dry memorial day across the Mid Atlantic region. Warm
and increasingly humid weather will follow for Tuesday
through Thursday with an increasing chance of scattered
showers and thunderstorms.
72 hour basin average quantitative precipitation forecast
through 12Z Thursday is expected to range from a tenth
/0.10/ to four tenths /0.40/ of an inch. As PWATS begin
increasing each day any thunderstorms will likely bring
locally heavy downpours up to 2 inches in spots.
Overall, expect main stem rivers and larger tributaries
to remain nearly steady over the next 48 to 72 hours.
Smaller creeks could see sharper rises in slow moving
thunderstorms Tuesday through Thursday.
MARFC river forecasts will be issued shortly.
