Short Range Forecast Discussion NWS Weather Prediction Center College Park MD 407 AM EDT Fri Oct 24 2014 Valid 12Z Fri Oct 24 2014 - 12Z Sun Oct 26 2014 ***Rain eventually tapering off in New England*** ***Unsettled weather continues for the Pacific Northwest*** ***Relatively quiet weather pattern elsewhere*** The nor'easter moving slowly eastward near Nova Scotia has brought soaking rains to New England over the last few days. The rainy weather should now remain confined to locations east of upstate New York, with the heaviest rainfall in Maine. By Saturday morning, the surface low should pull far enough away from the coast to take most of the steady rainfall into eastern Canada, with just a few showers remaining over Maine on Saturday. The Pacific Northwest should expect multiple rounds of rain over the next few days as onshore flow and a strong Pacific storm system moves over the region throughout Saturday. Currently, a stationary front stretched from the northern Rockies to northern California is bringing widespread showers with pockets of moderate rainfall. This front should remain over the Intermountain West to the Pacific coast throughout Saturday and will provide additional forcing for precipitation. By Friday night and into Saturday morning, a sub-1000mb surface low in the Pacific will approach the West Coast, bringing widespread showers and gusty winds to the coastline. Elsewhere across the continental U.S., a stationary front is expected to stay south of the Florida Keys through Saturday. Widespread showers and thunderstorms will be expected for South Florida on Friday. Farther to the north across the Plains to the Mid-Atlantic, cool and dry fall weather will continue with sunny to partly cloudy skies. Hamrick Graphics available at
