Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
132 PM EDT Monday, May 22, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A cold front exited the Ohio Valley to the east on Monday morning bringing an
end to the rainfall. High pressure will move through the basin Monday and
Monday night.

On Tuesday low pressure will swing southeast out of the upper Mississippi
Valley and into our region. This will bring a return of cooler and showery
weather for a couple of days.

Unsettled conditions are expected to continue late in the week and into the
weekend. While no one rain event is expected to be particularly excessive, the
continued wet pattern will allow for more significant river responses than
normal.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor to moderate flooding continues in western Indiana and southeastern Ohio.
Additional rains this week will result in significant river rises and the
potential for some isolated additional minor flooding is elevated.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain fell over all but the far western Ohio Valley. Basin average amounts were
generally less than 0.50 inch, but some local basins averaged 0.75 to 1.25
inches.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast for most of the Ohio Valley, though amounts will generally be
light at 0.25 inch or less. Only in western Kentucky and Tennessee and western
Virginia will basin average amounts approach 0.50 inch.
