Northeast Low pressure will continue to slowly strengthen as it progresses northeastward off the southeast coast of New England overnight and on Thursday. A generally showery regime will encompass the Northeast overnight with periods of rain expected from northern Virginia and eastern Pennsylvania through New England. A steadier, heavier rain will move northward from coastal New Jersey into New England through the overnight hours. Periods of rain, heavy at times, will continue to affect a large portion of the Northeast on Thursday; the heaviest rain appears to take aim at Maine, northern New Hampshire and northern Vermont. Thursday night and Friday the storm begins to push away from the New England coast allowing the rain to slowly subside. Rainfall totals up an inch are forecast from eastern Virginia northward to eastern New York. Storm totals of 1 to 3 inches are likely across New England with 3 to 5 inches possible in eastern Massachusetts, eastern New Hampshire and Maine. Strong northeast winds of 15 to 35 mph are likely along the coast of Maine, New Hampshire and northeast Massachusetts especially Wednesday night through Thursday night. Minimal coastal flooding is possible at high tide. The onshore winds may also cause beach erosion in those areas.

South The majority of the region will be dry and pleasant through the end of the week. A few showers could dot the landscape across eastern Oklahoma on Thursday. South Florida is the other area that has inclement weather through the end of the week. Low pressure organizing in the southern Gulf of Mexico moves across the Yucatan Peninsula Wednesday night and across Cuba Thursday night and Friday. This low keeps pushing moisture into southern Florida causing heavy showers and thunderstorms through the end of the week. Additional rainfall of 3 to 6 inches is possible from Lake Okeechobee southward through Friday with higher amounts possible where heavy rain persists for any extended period of time. Thursday's high temperatures range from the upper 50s and 60s near the southern Appalachians to the 80s in Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and central and south Florida.

Midwest A dying cold front will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms from Wisconsin and northern Illinois southwestward through eastern Iowa, northern Missouri and eastern Kansas. The remainder of the region will be dry. Temperatures remain cool from the Lakes through the Ohio Valley with highs mainly in the 50s and lower 60s; some 40s may linger in rain-cooled areas of the U.P. and Wisconsin. Highs will reach into the 70s over the Plains and Missouri Valley.

West A series of storm systems impact the Northwest with heavy rain over the next week. The first storm brings its rain to the region through early Friday. A second storm, perhaps more potent than the first, arrives later Friday and lingers through Sunday. The final storm is expected to occur Monday through next Wednesday and may contain moisture and energy from former Hurricane Ana. Rainfall totals of 3 to 10 inches are possible from the coast to the Cascades through next Wednesday. Inland areas could pick up 1 to 3 inches of rain during the next week. Flooding is most likely from the coast to the Cascades. Snow levels should be above pass level through all three storms. Several feet of snow are likely in the mountains above about 8,000 feet. High temperatures will be in the 50s and 60s in northern areas with 70s and 80s in southern areas Wednesday. Desert temperatures should reach the lower 90s in southeastern California, western Arizona and far southern Nevada.
