Short Range Forecast Discussion NWS Weather Prediction Center College Park MD 353 PM EDT Fri Oct 24 2014 Valid 00Z Sat Oct 25 2014 - 00Z Mon Oct 27 2014 ...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.
