Short Range Forecast Discussion NWS Weather Prediction Center College Park MD 456 PM EDT Thu Oct 23 2014 Valid 00Z Fri Oct 24 2014 - 00Z Sun Oct 26 2014 ...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. Fanning Graphics available at
