A DISTURBANCE MOVING SOUTHEAST WILL BRING MORE SCATTERED
THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON TO THE JAMES AND UPPER POTOMAC BASINS.

A BACKDOOR COLD FRONT WILL MOVE INTO THE NORTHERN BASINS THURSDAY
BRINGING SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS TO PORTIONS OF THE SUSQUEHANNA AND
DELAWARE BASINS. SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE ALSO EXPECTED IN
THE MOUNTAINS OF VIRGINIA WITH DAYTIME HEATING.

THE COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH THE SOUTHERN BASINS LATER FRIDAY
AND FRIDAY NIGHT. SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED FROM SOUTHERN
PENNSYLVANIA SOUTHWARD THROUGH VIRGINIA.

THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND LOOKS TO BE DRY AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN.

FORECASTED BASIN AVERAGED RAINFALL AMOUNTS THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT ARE
EXPECTED TO BE OVER ONE HALF INCH IN THE UPPER JAMES BASIN, BUT LESS
THAN ONE QUARTER INCH ELSEWHERE. POINT AMOUNTS OF ONE TO TWO INCHES
ARE POSSIBLE IN A FEW LOCATIONS.

ON AREA RIVERS AND CREEKS, GENERALLY MINOR CHANGES CAN BE EXPECTED
THROUGH THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND.
