The hot and humid conditions in the Ohio Valley as of late are about to come to
an end as much drier and cooler air pushes into the Ohio Valley. Showers and
thunderstorms will develop ahead of these changes in the southeast two thirds of
the region. But the basin should be rain-free once this activity exits the area
on Thursday and will last through the weekend. Warmer and more humid air
will slowly return beginning next week.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Some thunderstorms could produce brief localized flooding, but the potential for
new river flooding is low.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast over much of the southeastern two-thirds of the Ohio Valley
before late Thursday. Forecast amounts are a half inch or less in this area.
