Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1153 AM EST Wednesday, November 22, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
High pressure will build into the region today behind Tuesday night`s cold
front passage resulting in primarily dry weather on Thanksgiving and Friday.

A disturbance will move through the northern Great Lakes over the weekend, but
the only precipitation in the Ohio Valley will be some showers in the far
northeastern part of the basin.

Not until mid-next week does there appear to be a weather system that will
produce precipitation across the entire Ohio Valley, but even this should be
fairly light in nature.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Some flooding from last weekend`s rainfall has already ended. Most rivers still
in flood are receding or at least nearing their crests.  With little to no
precipitation over the next week, the potential for new flooding is low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
The northern half of the Ohio Valley will saw basin average amounts of less
than 0.25 inch.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Almost none. limited portions of the northeast and eastern Ohio Valley will see
a few hundredths of precipitation.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
