Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
111 PM EDT Monday, May 30, 2016
Next few days in the Ohio Rvier forecast basin should be relatively dry ones as
abundant moisture that was present the last couple of days in the Ohio valley
has decreased. A few showers and scattered thunderstorms are still possible
along the eastern fringes as the heat of the day progresses.
Otherwise, next widespread chance for basin-wide precipitation is looking to be
at the end of the week on Thursday and on into Friday. This cold front will
also transform the general pattern to one of more trough-iness across the
eastern third of the nation.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
No flooding is expected at this time.
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Scattered areas of precipitation fell through much of the central and eastern
basins. Heaviest amounts measured a half inch to on up to over two inches in
very localized areas in southern Ohio.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Some light QPF was forecast along the western and eastern fringes of the Ohio
River forecast basin. Otherwise much of the basin is forecast to receive zero
over the next 48 hours.
...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
