A weak ridge of high pressure will build over the northern
New England.  Meanwhile an upper level low over eastern
Tennessee will move northeastward into southwestern PA
late Monday.  Moisture will be drawn northward ahead of
the upper low and bring periods of showers and thunderstorms.
The combination of good moisture plume transport, deep SSE
flow and UVV`s will bring rainy periods from south to north
across MARFC`s hydrologic service area tonight into Monday.
With high PW`s, areas of locally heavy rainfall will be

The heaviest rainfall over the next 48 hours is expected to
extend from the West Branch Susquehanna and Juniata river
basin southward into the Potomac, Shenandoah, Rappahannock
and James river basin.

72 hour basin average rainfall forecast through 12Z Wednesday
is expected to range from two tenths /0.20/ to one and one
half /1.50/ inches.  Locally 2 to 3 inches of rain will be
possible in persistent rain bands.

MARFC Hydrologists are running the river model at this time
and RVF`s will be issued shortly.  If any WFO`s have any
questions or concerns, just call MARFC.
