It has been a week of dodging storms for the Northeast and that pattern will continue through the weather this weekend.

However, colder temperatures moving in could transition some of the rain to snow in the interior portions of the region. Here is what you need to know about this forecast heading into the weekend.

Midweek Storm Ushering in Widespread Rainfall and Flooding Risks

A new rain storm delivered heavy rainfall to a large area of the Northeast on Thursday. A new storm will follow right behind, creating more travel issues and potentially dropping snow on some areas as the mercury falls.

First up was a midweek storm that brought significant amounts of rain to a zone from the Carolinas and up through Maine.

This rainstorm delivered widespread rainfall amounts of 1 to 4 inches in a period of just 12 to 18 hours. Urban areas saw the risk of flooding as the rain fell quickly at times. Residents were advised to be aware of this risk when heading out on the roads.

Air travelers experienced disruptions on Thursday. In addition to the torrential rain, areas of low clouds and fog created delays at some of the busiest airport hubs up and down the East Coast.

The weather began to dry out from south to north throughout the day Thursday. Friday is shaping up to be mostly dry for the bulk of the Eastern Seaboard, making it the best day of the week to get outside.
