.DISCUSSION...

A stationary front extends from eastern Virginia into an area of
Low Pressure over the Ohio Valley. The front will move very
little today as the area of low pressure slowly advances east
toward the northern Mid-Atlantic. The combination of these
features will result in scattered to numerous showers and
thunderstorms across the region.
