Low Pressure which moved up the East coast brought snow across much
of MARFC`s inland river basins with a mix of rain and snow closer
to the coast over the past 24 hours.  Below is a list of the highest
observed precipitation (water equivalents) from 12Z Wednesday through
12Z Thursday.

A weak upper level low will keep cloudy weather with a few scattered
light snow and rain showers through 00Z Friday.  High pressure will
follow for Friday and bring fair and dry weather to MARFC`s entire
forecast area.

72 hour basin average QPF (water equivalents) is expected to range
from zero /0.00/ up to a tenth /0.10/ of an inch.  Based on observed
precipitation through 12Z today and forecasted precipitation, expect
general 2 foot rises across parts of the Raritan, James and Appomattox
river basin.  Across the rest of the Mid Atlantic region most of the
precipitation wednesday fell in the form of snow; therefore, expect
little change in river levels over the next 48 hours.

All MARFC river forecasts will be issued before 11am.
