THE SYSTEM REPONSIBLE FOR THE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL TUESDAY IS NOW
OVER NEW ENGLAND AND MOVING AWAY. MUCH OF THE MID-ATLANTIC REGION
WILL BE DRY TODAY WITH THE EXCEPTION BEING IN THE FAR NORTH WHERE
SCATTERED SHOWERS MAY BRING ANOTHER QUARTER INCH OR SO OF RAIN.

THURSDAY WILL START DRY, BUT MOISTURE WILL BE ON THE INCREASE AS
ANOTHER DISTURBANCE APPROACHES THE SOUTHERN BASINS FROM THE WEST.
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED MAINLY SOUTH OF THE
MASON-DIXON LINE WITH FORECASTED BASIN AVERAGED RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF
ONE HALF TO ONE INCH. ISOLATED POINT AMOUNTS OF TWO TO THREE INCHES
ARE POSSIBLE. LITTLE TO NO PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED ACROSS
PENNSYLVANIA, NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY.

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED AGAIN FRIDAY ACROSS
THE SOUTH WITH RAINFALL AMOUNTS LESS THAN ONE HALF INCH EXPECTED.
ANY AMOUNTS ACROSS THE NORTH WILL BE LIGHT.

ON AREA RIVERS AND CREEKS, ALL TRIBUTARIES IN THE DELAWARE AND
SUSQUEHANNA BASINS HAVE CRESTED AND WILL FALL TODAY. MINOR CHANGES
ARE EXPECTED THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS FOR THE MAIN STEM DELAWARE AND
SUSQUEHANNA RIVERS. MINOR CHANGES ARE EXPECTED TODAY FOR THE
POTOMAC, JAMES AND APPOMATTOX BASINS. ADDITIONAL MINOR RISES ARE
EXPECTED ACROSS THE SOUTHERN BASINS THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY.
