...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
An upper level cold pool of air is bringing some snow showers to the Ohio Valley
today and temperatures slowly fall behind last night`s cold front.  The snow
shouldn`t amount to much and temperatures will rebound significantly during the
latter half of the week.  More rain is expected basinwide over the weekend, and
could be a significant event causing substantial river rises.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Some minor flooding is forecast on the lower end of the White River in Indiana,
but otherwise, the potential for river flooding will wane until the weekend.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Showers and thunderstorms occurred over most of the Ohio Valley in the 24 hours
hours ending near daybreak today. Basin average amounts were mostly under an
inch.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Light snow is expected across the much of the areas north of the Ohio River this
afternoon, but amounts will be hydrologically insignificant.

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