Another round of wet weather will swing through the mid-Atlantic, just as some areas were beginning to dry out and enjoy some sunshine.
The atmospheric traffic jam that held clouds and damp weather in for days along part of the Atlantic Seaboard is breaking up. However, storm systems will waste no time moving in from the west.
Rainfall has begun to move into parts of the Ohio Valley, eastern Great Lakes and Appalachians Wednesday. Clouds have begun to return some coastal areas as well. Some rain will sweep across the I-95 corridor Wednesday night and again Thursday night.
The rain will not nearly as intense, or as long-lasting as the deluge that focused over south-central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland late last week. In fact, the rainfall is likely to be sporadic and fast-moving.
The speed of the two systems responsible for the rainfall should prevent small stream flooding. And for some areas that received little rain since the late summer, it can soak the ground and bring minor rises on some reservoirs.
However, in a few locations, downpours can be heavy enough to cause minor poor drainage and urban area flooding, as well as travel delays.
The rain may significant enough for a brief time cause to minor flight delays in cities such as Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., New York City and Boston.
The wet weather could delay the harvest of corn in some areas and make for more mud in the pumpkin patches.
High pressure will build in from the west late on Friday, which should promote a dry start for the weekend.
