Quite a few scattered storms did occur overnight! We must watch as severe Storms seem likely for areas this afternoon and evening. A dry weekend appears on tap. Will see a return to summer like afternoon and evening storms Monday straight through Wednesday of next week. That may change IF a tropical wave makes it to the Gulf of Mexico!

Summary: Flooding at the river and stream levels continues today and will likely start getting better by Saturday time frame. Please stay tuned to local news and weather outlets for specific stream information. We are under the gun again with the possibility of Severe Storms this afternoon. The NWS has outlined our region under a slight risk for severe! See Day 1 outlook here: http://www.midatlanticweather.com/severe/day1severe.htm This could mean isolated flood situations and the biggest risk of hail and high winds. There is a chance however of isolated tornadoes, especially east of I-95.

High pressure comes in for the weekend and we stay dry and seasonable.

Next Week poses some interesting scenarios in the Long term. For now, Monday through Wednesday seem warm with highs in the upper 80s for the most part and afternoon and evening thunderstorms possible. There is a RISK of a tropical system in the Gulf that COULD end up coming up into the region and providing us another flooding risk. It is all speculation now, but something we will watch!

Please note that many rivers and larger streams will approach flood stage or crest above them. Check with the Mid Atlantic River forecast center here http://www.erh.noaa.gov/marfc for updates on stages and when crests are expected.

Tropics:A Strong Tropical Wave is entering the Caribbean. IF it survives the turbulent times in its immediate future, a long term development could occur in the Gulf.
