Our storm system, which has been responsible for the heavy rain and severe weather in the South, will finally depart the US by the end of the day Friday as it tracks into southeastern Canada. Before then, however, will be scattered rain showers and thunderstorms ahead of its cold front. Once that front sweeps through, it will then usher in a drier air mass and eventually cooler temperatures.

In the morning for the Southeast, showers and thunderstorms will move east, affecting the coastal Carolinas and Georgia as well as the Florida Panhandle. Then in the afternoon, this line should clear out by 3pm for the Carolinas and Georgia, although a second line of developing storms may work through eastern North Carolina through the evening hours. The storms on the southern extent of the main line will continue to impact northern Florida.

In the Northeast, it will be more of a messy day with scattered showers throughout the day. In the morning, showers will be impacting much of New England, portions of the interior Northeast, the eastern Ohio Valley, and down toward the Mason-Dixon Line. Even some snow showers are possible in western New York and Pennsylvania. Then in the afternoon, the activity will quiet down across the interior Northeast and Ohio Valley while showers persist at times through the evening hours in New England. A line of showers and storms ahead of the cold front may also move through from the New York City area through eastern North Carolina during the afternoon and evening.
