...Additional Moderate Rainfall Possible Over the Next Several
Days...

.A frontal system will remain nearly stationary over the region
during the next several days as a series of low pressure systems
from the southeastern U.S. track northeast along the boundary.
Each system will bring widespread light rain, with periods of
moderate rainfall expected at times. This in combination with
very saturated soil conditions from repeated recent rainfall
during the past several weeks and recent snow and ice melt will
lead to increased to excessive runoff of rain water, which will
enhance the threat for flooding of creeks and streams, and
possibly even mainstem rivers during the next several days into
early next week.
