Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1022 AM EDT Monday, September 18, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A weak cold front has pushed into the western Ohio Valley. It is expected to
stall out in this area, as high pressure over the eastern Ohio Valley will hold
firm. Relatively warm and moist southerly flow will remain in place for the
first few days of the week, allowing scattered showers and storms to persist.

Later in the week, high pressure will build over the basin allowing dry
conditions to influence the entire region.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The flood potential is low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
There were some light, isolated showers over the eastern mountains of the Ohio
Valley. More significantly, showers and storms affected eastern Illinois,
northwestern Ohio and all but southeastern Indiana. Basin averages in this
western rain ranged up to the 0.50 to 0.75 inch range.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Very light rain continues to be forecast over the eastern mountains. The
western half of the Ohio Valley will see rain, with heaviest amounts, ranging
from 0.50 to nearly 1.00 inch expected in eastern Illinois and central and
southern Indiana.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
None.
