Expect more scattered convection today and Friday as a weak
surface front drops from north to south across the Mid Atlantic.
Forecasted basin average rainfall through 12Z saturday is
expected to be one half /0.50/ inch or less; however, slower
moving thunderstorms will bring the possibility of locally
heavier downpours up to two /2.00/ inches.

Expect little change in river levels over the next 48 to 72
hours.  There could be sharper rises on some small streams in
the vicinity of heavier downpours from thunderstorms.
