While there could be an afternoon shower or thunderstorm in a few
places this afternoon (especially our far western river basins)
expect mainly fair and dry conditions through early tonight.  An
upper level trough will then gradually move across the Mid
Atlantic this weekend and bring periods of showers and
thunderstorms.

72 hour basin average rainfall ending 12Z Monday is forecast to
range from one half /0.50/ to one and one half /1.50/ inches.
At this time only minor river rises are expected, generally
under 3 feet.
