MOISTURE WAS ON THE INCREASE WEDNESDAY ACROSS THE MID-ATLANTIC
REGION AS SCATTERED SHOWERS DEVELOPED. OBSERVED RAINFALL AMOUNTS
WERE GENERALLY ONE QUARTER INCH OR LESS.

LOW PRESSURE WILL TRACK THROUGH PENNSYLVANIA AND SOUTHEAST NEW YORK
TODAY INTO TONIGHT. RAIN IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE UPPER SUSQUEHANNA
AND UPPER DELAWARE BASINS WITH SHOWERS AND SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS
FURTHER SOUTH. ACROSS THE FAR NORTH, RAIN MAY CHANGE TO SNOW BEFORE
ENDING. FORECASTED PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS THROUGH TONIGHT ARE ONE
HALF TO THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH ACROSS THE FAR NORTH AND LESS THAN
ONE HALF INCH FOR THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN BASINS.

THE COLD FRONT WILL STALL OVER SOUTHEAST VIRGINIA FRIDAY AS SHOWERS
CONTINUE. ELSEWERE, ONLY SCATTERED SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED.
PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS FRIDAY WILL BE ONE QUARTER INCH OR LESS.

SHOWERS WILL LINGER SATURDAY AS THE UPPER LOW MOVES THROUGH. AGAIN,
PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS WILL BE ON THE LIGHT SIDE.

ON AREA RIVERS AND CREEKS, ONLY MINOR RISES ARE EXPECTED THROUGH
FRIDAY ACROSS THE POTOMAC AND JAMES BASINS. MINOR TO MODERATE RISES
ARE EXPECTED FOR THE SUSQUEHANNA, DELAWARE AND NEW JERSEY BASINS.
THERE WILL BE SOME SNOWMELT ACROSS THE UPPER SUSQUEHANNA AND
DELAWARE BASINS THROUGH TODAY BUT TEMPERATURES IN THE 30S WILL LIMIT
HOW MUCH COMES OUT. SOME SMALLER STREAMS AND TRIBUTARIES MAY REACH
THREE QUARTERS BANKFULL BY FRIDAY WHILE THE MAIN STEM RIVERS COULD
SEE RISES TO HALF BANKFULL LATER FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY. NO FLOODING
IS FORECASTED AT THIS TIME.

ALL DAILY RIVER FORECASTS WILL BE AVAILABLE SHORTLY.
