...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Today is the last day of event-less weather in the Ohio Valley for possibly the
rest of the week.  Rain and snow will enter the basin tonight and will become
all snow on Monday night.  Snow showers will persist in the Ohio Valley through
Wednesday night as a slow-moving upper-level region of cold air lingers over the
region.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding is occurring from previous rainfall along the lower Ohio River
and in portions of western Kentucky. Otherwise, flood potential is very low in
the Ohio Valley.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
None.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain and snow will begin in the Ohio Valley tonight and last (off and on)
through Wednesday night.  Water-equivalent amounts through midday Tuesday could
be as high as a half inch in the Appalachians.
