Forecasters said there is a low pressure system moving from the Midwest into eastern Canada that will drag a cold front through the region. The system will tap into Gulf and Atlantic moisture to produce heavy rainfall Saturday afternoon and Saturday night, the National Weather Service said.

Rainfall amounts are expected to be between 1 1/2 to 2 inches, with locally higher amounts of up to 2 1/2 inches possible, according to the National Weather Service.

Officials are urging residents in flood-prone areas to remain vigilant.
