    8_TO_14_DAY_TEMPSThe jet stream will remain fairly far north for this time of the year in the April 17-23 timeframe, meaning much of the nation will see near or above normal temperatures, and at least Southern New England should fall in that above normal classification.  A swath of the Ohio Valley and Mississippi Valley will likely not verify all that much above normal for temperature, but that will be thanks to two potential heavy rain makers - one at midweek, and the other on the weekend of April 21-22.  8_TO_14_DAY_PRECIPThe question on this becomes a familiar one - after this rain reaches the Eastern Lakes, does it successfully march east across New England, which desperately needs rain, or does the rain re-organize around a Mid-Atlantic storm center and bypass the Northeast corner again?  At this point, there's enough of an indication that this could happen, that I have not included New England in the above normal precipitation category, implying the drought will worsen.
