Flash Flood Watches continue from New England to the Southeast as the threat for heavy rain continues today (Friday). A few areas could see more than 5" of rain into this weekend, which may lead to flooding. A strong area of high pressure in the eastern Atlantic Ocean continues to funnel a rich feed of moisture into the atmosphere from the Gulf of Mexico. The high humidity streams northward along a stalled front, producing rounds of heavy rain. Later this weekend, the high will begin to shift, diminishing the flooding threat. The front barely moves throughout the day, as a low pressure center shifts from the Mid Atlantic to the Northeast. This will be the focus for a more organized area of storms with the potential for flooding rains. Storms are still possible anywhere along the front and with over saturated soils, flooding is a concern. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
