...HEAVY RAIN CONTINUES FOR THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST THIS WEEKEND...

...CONDITIONS REMAIN QUIET FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE NATION...


IT WILL BE A WET WEEKEND FOR MANY PLACES ACROSS THE NORTHWEST. A
STRONG SYSTEM WILL MOVE IN OFF THE PACIFIC SATURDAY MORNING, AND
MOVE ACROSS THE ROCKIES AND INTO THE NORTHERN/CENTRAL PLAINS BY
THE END OF THE WEEKEND. PLENTY OF MOISTURE STREAMING IN OFF THE
OCEAN WILL SUPPORT MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF ORGANIZED AND HEAVY RAIN,
ESPECIALLY FOR COASTAL REGIONS FROM NORTHERN CALIFORNIA TO
WASHINGTON, AS WELL AS THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE NORTHERN
CASCADES. EVENTUALLY, ONCE THE SURFACE FRONT MOVES ONSHORE, THE
RAIN WILL SPILL OVER INTO THE NORTHERN ROCKIES, BUT THE MOST
ORGANIZED OF THE PRECIPITATION SHOULD REMAIN CONFINED TO FAVORABLE
SLOPES OF THE HIGHEST TERRAIN. A FEW SNOW SHOWERS MAY ALSO BE
POSSIBLE FOR THE HIGHEST PEAKS.

ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE NATION, THE WEATHER LOOKS RELATIVELY QUIET.
AS THE NOR`EASTER MOVES AWAY FROM THE NEW ENGLAND COAST, SO WILL
THE RAIN. ONLY LIGHT SHOWERS REMAIN FOR THE NORTHERN MOST PART OF
MAINE AT THIS POINT. BEHIND, HIGH PRESSURE TAKES OVER THE EASTERN
US, AND USHERS WITH IT DRY AND WARMER WEATHER. MEANWHILE, A FEW
SHOWERS MAY BE POSSIBLE AS A SYSTEM MOVES ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES,
AND THE HEAVY RAIN ACROSS SOUTHERN FLORIDA SHOULD BE ENDING BY
TONIGHT OR TOMORROW MORNING.

***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.

...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.
