Remnants of Lee Persist Over Part of Mid-Atlantic States and Southwestern New England, September 8, 2011

Miami, Florida—(ENEWSPF)—September 8, 2011 – 11 AM EDT.  The National Hurricane Center reports that remnants of Lee are bringing havy rains and flooding that are expect to persist over parts of the Mid-Atlantic states and southwestern New England today. 

At 11 AM EDT (1500 UTC) there was no discernible surface circulation for Lee. The large scale extratropical low that has absorbed the circulation of lee is located in central Ohio.  Tropical moisture steaming up from the Atlantic Ocean continues to be lifted over a well-defined stationary front across the northern Mid-Atlantic states, resulting in persistent bands of heavy rain across the mid-Atlantic states into the northeast.  Additional heavy rain is possible in theses locations today before the entire extratropical system slowly dissipates by the end of the week.

Topical moisture continues to stream into the Mid-Atlantic and northeastern states.  The primary plume of moisture late this morning has set up in a band from the Chesapeake Bay northward into eastern Pennsylvania.  Rainfall rates of 1 to w2 inches per hour were occurring in the heavier portions of this band.  An additional 1 to 4 inches of rain, with locally higher amounts, are possible through Saturday across portions of the Mid-Atlantic and northeastern states. These rains may cause flash floods and mudslides along with some road closures.
