VALID 00Z TUE MAR 26 2019 - 00Z THU MAR 28 2019  
 
...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS PERSIST IN THE SOUTHEAST U.S. AND  
RAIN/SNOW RETURNS TO THE WEST COAST...  
 
...MAJOR RIVER FLOODING CONTINUES ACROSS THE NORTHERN/CENTRAL  
PLAINS AND MISSISSIPPI VALLEY...  
 
A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM CURRENTLY OVER THE OHIO VALLEY WILL CONTINUE  
TRACKING EASTWARD AND PRODUCE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FROM THE  
GULF COAST TO THE MID ATLANTIC THIS EVENING. SOME STORMS COULD  
TURN SEVERE ACROSS PARTS OF THE DEEP SOUTH TODAY AND TONIGHT AHEAD  
OF A COLD FRONT. THE STORM PREDICTION CENTER HAS A SLIGHT RISK OF  
SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS PARTS OF ALABAMA AND GEORGIA. SHOWERS  
WILL LINGER ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST THROUGH WEDNESDAY WITH MOST  
LOCATIONS AFFECTED RECEIVING UNDER A HALF INCH OF RAINFALL, EXCEPT  
FOR LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS WHERE ORGANIZED THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY  
DEVELOPS.  
 
ACROSS THE WESTERN U.S., A PACIFIC COLD FRONT IS CURRENTLY  
ENTERING THE WEST COAST AND ANOTHER IS FORECAST TO REACH THE  
REGION BY WEDNESDAY, ADVECTING A PLUME OF ENHANCED MOISTURE ACROSS  
NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND SOUTHERN OREGON. HEAVY SNOW IS LIKELY FOR  
THE NORTHERN SIERRA NEVADA AND THE SISKIYOU MOUNTAINS, AND  
MODERATE RAIN FOR THE VALLEY LOCATIONS AND NEAR THE COAST.  
LIGHTER PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED ACROSS NORTHERN OREGON AND  
WASHINGTON, AND EXTENDING INLAND ACROSS THE NORTHERN ROCKIES.  
 
MAINLY DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED FOR MOST OF THE CENTRAL U.S.  
THROUGH WEDNESDAY EVENING. HOWEVER, MAJOR RIVER FLOODING AND ICE  
JAMS ARE STILL ONGOING ACROSS MUCH OF THE NORTHERN/CENTRAL PLAINS  
AND MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. THIS IS DUE TO TEMPERATURES ABOVE FREEZING  
AND A MELTING SNOW PACK. NUMEROUS FLOOD WARNINGS AND ADVISORIES  
ARE IN EFFECT.
