Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1024 AM EDT Sunday, September 17, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Today a weak cold front will approach from the west with some shower and
storm activity associated with it. It will not push too far eastward into the
basin as high pressure over the eastern Ohio Valley will remain in place. This
moisture will remain in the west for a few days giving the northwest quadrant
of the Ohio Valley the best chances for rain through mid-week. A few isolated
showers will remain possible over the mountains of the eastern basin.

By Wednesday and Thursday a disturbance approaching from the west will be
forced south resulting continued best chances in the west and southwest.

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

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Almost none. Isolated light showers fell along the eastern edge of the forecast
area as well as northern Indiana.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast over the northwestern portion of the Ohio Valley. Basin
average amounts will increase to the west with 1.00 to 1.25 inch over west
central Indiana and east central Illinois. Light amounts of 0.10 inch or less
are expected in western New York, western Pennsylvania and eastern West
Virginia.
