Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1110 AM EDT Saturday, July 4, 2015

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
On Saturday morning a cold front lay across the southern Ohio Valley. Showers
and isolated storms will be possible along and south of the front, but much
more significant storm activity will remain south of the basin today.

A wave moving along the front will lift through the southeastern Ohio Valley on
Sunday and Sunday night, bringing more widespread precipitation into that
region.

A cold front is expected to sweep across the region next Tuesday bringing
more widespread precipitation to the entire basin. Another front may push
through at least the northern Ohio Valley late next week.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor to moderate flooding continues across the western and northwestern
Ohio Valley as well as in western Kentucky. Rivers here will be slow to
recede and should linger above flood stage for several more days.

The potential for any new flooding is low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain fell across all but the northwestern Ohio Valley. Basin average amounts
were highest across Kentucky, portions of West Virginia and southwestern
Pennsylvania where they ranged from 1.00 to 2.50 inches. Isolated portions of
Kentucky saw local basins average 3.00 to 3.50 inches.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast across the southeast half of the Ohio Valley. Basin average
amounts will increase to the southeast with amounts as high as 0.75 to 1.25
inches in far southeastern Kentucky, eastern Tennessee and far western
Virginia.
