HIGH PRESSURE OFF THE COAST TODAY WILL BRING ABUNDANT MOISTURE INTO
THE REGION ON A SOUTHERLY FLOW. AS A COLD FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE
NORTHWEST LATE, SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP FROM WESTERN
VIRGINIA THROUGH CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA INTO SOUTHERN NEW YORK. THE
HEAVIEST RAINFALL THROUGH TONIGHT WILL BE IN THE UPPER SUSQUEHANNA
BASIN WHERE ONE HALF TO ONE INCH MAY FALL.

THE FRONT WILL SAG INTO PENNSYLVANIA SUNDAY WITH WIDESPREAD SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED. ONE INCH OR MORE OF RAIN MAY FALL
ACROSS THE NORTHERN BASINS.

BY MONDAY, THE FOCUS WILL SHIFT TO THE SOUTH AND EAST AS THE FRONT
SLOWLY SAGS. THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO BE FROM NEW JERSEY
TO SOUTHEAST VIRGINIA WHERE AN INCH OR MORE IS POSSIBLE.

ON AREA RIVERS AND CREEKS, GENERALLY MINOR RISES ARE EXPECTED ACROSS
THE BASINS THROUGH MONDAY. IT IS DRY OUT THERE AND STREAMFLOWS ARE
DOWN. LOCALLY SHARP RISES MAY OCCUR ON SMALLER RIVERS AND CREEKS
NEAR STRONGER THUNDERSTORMS.
