Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1225 PM EDT Tuesday, July 28, 2015

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Without any strong feature to focus on, showers and storms will develop
randomly, mainly to the south of the Ohio River.

A cold front crossing the upper Mississippi Valley today will reach the
northwest Ohio Valley by Wednesday morning. The front will sweep to south of
the Ohio River by Thursday morning and continue out of the area Thursday
night. While showers and storms will accompany this front, rainfall will be
scattered in nature and is not expected to be excessive.

Behind the front, high pressure will build into the region, reducing the
chances of rainfall through the upcoming weekend.

Next week, occasional disturbances passing through the region should bring a
return of rain to the area.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding lingers in the western basin and will continue to do so for
the next few days. Otherwise, the potential for additional flooding will be
low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain fell across the southern two-thirds of the Ohio Valley. Basin averages
were generally less than 0.50 inch, though some of eastern Kentucky received
basin average amounts in the 1.50 inch range.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Over the next 2 days, rainfall is expected across nearly the entire basin.
Basin average amounts will mostly be 0.30 inch or less, though the far
southeastern areas in the Kanawha Watershed may see up to 0.60 inch.
