Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1227 PM EDT Friday, October 20, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
High pressure will continue to provide dry conditions across the entire
Ohio Valley through Saturday. On Sunday a cold front will slowly approach the
region from the west. Meanwhile, low pressure will develop over Dixie and
begin moving north along the front. This low will pull deep moisture into the
basin Monday and early Tuesday. Behind the front, much colder air will spill
into the basin Tuesday into midweek.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
There is no threat of flooding through the weekend, but the risk will
increase early next week with the potential for heavy rain.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
None.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Nearly zero. Some rain is possible early Sunday morning across the far
western Ohio Valley.  Amounts should be around 0.10" or so.

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