Pennsylvania, Ohio and similar states will be in the target range for a very wet night in accordance with a nearly stationary low pressure system in the Illinois region. As a cold front spun up showers and storms this morning, the front will continue moving to the northeast. Even right now, strong showers and storms are in the area designated as a threat for potentially flooding rainfall. Here's the forecast QPF (rainfall totals) for the next several hours in Figure 1, as well as the Heavy Rainfall Threat graphic for the same time frame in Figure 2.

A low pressure system stationed over Illinois/Iowa will continue to produce showers and embedded thunderstorms in the center of the low as well as a front moving east into the Eastern Seaboard. Below is a current surface analysis map of the storm and cold front.
