...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Conditions will be quiet across the Ohio Valley today. A warm front will
develop over the northern Ohio Valley well out in front of a low pressure
system in the plains. Rains will develop along this front Friday night and into
Saturday. Later on Saturday, low pressure will move through northern Indiana
into Michigan, and an associated strong cold front will push through the basin
featuring fast moving showers and storms.

Temperatures will be much colder behind the front on Sunday.

At this time, the outlook for next week is for drier than normal conditions.

Rainfall this weekend will result in some significant river rises. There is
some potential for some minor river flooding in portions of northwestern
Indiana and northern Ohio.

generally be higher to the north with east central Illinois, northern Indiana,
northern Ohio, western Pennsylvania and far western New York expecting 1.00 to
