...SEVERE WEATHER THREAT CONTINUES TO SHIFT TO THE EAST COAST ON  
FRIDAY...  
 
...WIDESPREAD RAINFALL WITH POSSIBLE FLOODING EXPECTED FROM THE  
MID-ATLANTIC TO THE NORTHEAST...  
 
A SLOW-MOVING FRONTAL BOUNDARY EXTENDING FROM THE NORTHEAST INTO  
THE GULF OF MEXICO WILL REMAIN A FOCUS FOR RAINS AND STORMS  
THROUGH FRIDAY. SOME OF THESE STORMS MAY BE STRONG TO SEVERE,  
WITH THE STORM PREDICTION CENTER CONTINUING TO HIGHLIGHT A  
MARGINAL RISK FOR SEVERE WEATHER FROM UPSTATE NEW YORK AND  
SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND TO FLORIDA. HEAVY RAIN WILL ALSO BE A  
THREAT, ESPECIALLY ALONG AND AHEAD OF AN AREA OF INTENSIFYING AREA  
OF LOW PRESSURE LIFTING NORTH ALONG THE FRONT FROM THE  
MID-ATLANTIC INTO THE NORTHEAST. THESE HEAVY RAINS MAY POSE  
FLASH-FLOODING CONCERNS, WITH THE WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER  
HIGHLIGHTING THE THREAT WITH A SLIGHT RISK FOR EXCESSIVE RAINFALL  
FROM THE MID-ATLANTIC TO NEW ENGLAND. AS THE LOW LIFTS INTO  
ATLANTIC CANADA AND THE FRONT PUSHES OFFSHORE, EXPECT THE HEAVY  
RAINFALL AND SEVERE WEATHER THREAT TO WANE ACROSS MUCH OF THE  
EASTERN U.S. HOWEVER, WINDY AND WET CONDITIONS, INCLUDING SOME  
MIXED PRECIPITATION IN THE MOUNTAINS IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE  
ACROSS UPSTATE NEW YORK AND NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND THROUGH LATE  
SATURDAY. HIGH WIND WATCHES ARE IN EFFECT FOR SATURDAY FOR  
PORTIONS OF UPSTATE NEW YORK AND NEW ENGLAND.  
 
OUT WEST, A FRONTAL SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT WIDESPREAD  
PRECIPITATION AS IT PUSHES EAST FROM THE NORTHWEST INTO THE  
NORTHERN AND CENTRAL ROCKIES AND PLAINS ON FRIDAY. THIS WILL  
INCLUDE SOME HIGH ELEVATION SNOWS FOR THE NORTHERN AND CENTRAL  
ROCKIES, AS WELL AS FOR PORTIONS OF EASTERN MONTANA AND AND  
WESTERN NORTH DAKOTA. STRONG GUSTY WINDS ARE ALSO A CONCERN  
ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS, WITH HIGH WIND WATCHES IN EFFECT FOR  
PORTIONS OF THE ROCKIES FROM WESTERN MONTANA TO SOUTHERN WYOMING.
