...RAIN EVENTUALLY TAPERING OFF IN NEW ENGLAND...

...STORMY WEATHER CONTINUES FOR THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST...

...SOAKING RAINS EXPECTED FOR SOUTHERN FLORIDA...


THE LOW MOVING ALONG THE NORTHEAST COASTLINE HAS BROUGHT SOAKING
RAINS TO THE REGION THE LAST FEW DAYS.  THE MODERATE SHOWERS WILL
BEGIN MOVING INTO NEW ENGLAND BY THURSDAY EVENING. THERE COULD BE
MODERATE TO HEAVY SHOWERS FROM THURSDAY NIGHT TO FRIDAY AFTERNOON
FOR NEW ENGLAND WHICH COULD LEAD TO POSSIBILITY OF FLASH FLOODING.
 HOWEVER, THIS IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE WIDESPREAD.  SEE WPC`S
EXCESSIVE RAINFALL PRODUCT FOR MORE INFORMATION.  BY FRIDAY
MORNING, THE SURFACE LOW WILL BEGIN PULLING AWAY FROM THE NEW
ENGLAND COAST; CONSEQUENTLY, THE MODERATE SHOWERS WILL SUBSIDE
SOMETIME FRIDAY EVENING.

THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST SHOULD EXPECT CONTINUOUS SHOWERS OVER THE
NEXT FEW DAYS AS SEVERAL FRONTS MOVE OVER THE AREA THROUGHOUT THE
SHORT TERM PERIOD.  CURRENTLY, A COLD FRONT STRETCHED FROM THE
NORTHERN ROCKIES TO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA IS BRINGING WIDESPREAD
SHOWERS WITH POCKETS OF MODERATE RAINFALL.  A STATIONARY FRONT
WILL STAY DRAPED ALONG THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST TO THE PACIFIC COAST
THROUGHOUT FRIDAY AND WILL PROVIDE FOCUS FOR PRECIPITATION.  BY
FRIDAY NIGHT AND INTO SATURDAY MORNING, A DEEPENING SURFACE LOW IN
THE PACIFIC WILL APPROACH THE WEST COAST.  AS IT GETS CLOSER,
SHOWERS WILL BECOME WIDESPREAD ALONG THE COASTLINE.

A STATIONARY FRONT WILL STAY SOUTH OF THE FLORIDA KEYS THROUGH
SATURDAY.  WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE EXPECTED
FOR MUCH OF THE SOUTHERN HALF OF FLORIDA.  THE FLORIDA KEYS WILL
LIKELY RECEIVE THE HEAVIEST AMOUNT OF RAINFALL.
