CLOUDS WILL BEGIN TO WORK THEIR WAY INTO THE BASIN THIS EVENING AND
OVERNIGHT AHEAD OF A WINTER STORM. THIS STORM WILL HIT THE BASIN ON
SUNDAY AND COULD DROP SOME ADDITIONAL SNOW IN THE BASIN. THE LARGEST
QPF AMOUNTS ARE FORECAST TO BE OVER PENNSYLVANIA WITH A HALF TO THREE
QUARTERS OF AN INCH FORECAST.

ICE REMAINS ON MANY RIVERS AND CREEKS...ALTHOUGH VISUAL SIGNS ARE
PRESENT THAT WOULD INDICATE THIS ICE IS WEAKENING.

AT THIS TIME WE ARE WATCHING THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR NEXT STORM IN THE
WEATHER MODELS. AS THIS NEXT SYSTEM APPROACHES LATER ON TUESDAY AND
INTO WEDNESDAY...WARMER AIR WILL SPREAD INTO THE REGION. IT IS ALSO
LIKELY THAT THE SOUTHERN TWO THIRDS OF THE BASIN WILL SEE THE
PRECIPITATION FALL IN THE FORM OF RAIN. UNCERTAINTY EXISTS IN THE
TRACK AS WELL AS THE AMOUNT AND TYPE OF PRECIPITATION THAT WILL OCCUR.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS SYSTEM AND ITS POTENTIAL IMPACT ON
OUR RIVERS.
