Short Range Forecast Discussion NWS Weather Prediction Center College Park MD 412 PM EDT Wed Oct 22 2014 Valid 00Z Thu Oct 23 2014 - 00Z Sat Oct 25 2014 ...Stormy weather across the Northeast, Pacific Northwest, and southern Florida... Low pressure currently off the Mid-Atlantic coast will slowly move northeastward over the next few days. This has already delivered a fair amount of rain to the Mid-Atlantic region. Heavier pockets of rain have been moving across the Northeast/New England region on Wednesday and will continue to do so through Friday. Flash flooding is a possibility and will be confined specifically to New England on Wednesday and Thursday. Precipitation will taper off by Friday afternoon as the low progresses toward Nova Scotia. Quite the busy pattern can be expected for the Pacific Northwest. On Wednesday, a cold front moved inland across Washington state and Oregon. This is bringing light to moderate showers from British Columbia to northern California and will persist through Thursday. By Thursday evening, the cold front will stretch across the Great Basin and northern California. By this time, most of the precipitation around the Pacific Northwest region will be lighter around with the exception of northern California where moderate showers are possible. However, with another incoming system from the Pacific approaches the West Coast, showers will last through Thursday. With a stationary front draped south of the Florida Keys, southern Florida can exact heavy showers and thunderstorms through Wednesday night and into Thursday. The Florida Keys especially will receive the bulk of the heavier rainfall activity. Precipitation will lighten up slightly by Thursday evening; however, the stationary front will stay put south of the Keys throughout the short term period, thus stormy weather is expected to remain. A line of showers and some embedded thunderstorms will continue to move across the Plains with an occluded front progressing eastward toward the Mississippi Valley. The rainfall in Texas will end by Thursday morning. The Upper Midwest and Mississippi Valley can expect to see precipitation by Thursday afternoon. The showers will begin to dwindle in coverage by Friday morning. Fanning Graphics available at
