Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1255 PM EDT Wednesday, July 29, 2015

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A cold front that had moved into the northwestern Ohio Valley late Wednesday
morning will continue to sweep to south of the Ohio River by Thursday morning
and exit the area Thursday night. While showers and storms will accompany
this front, rainfall will be scattered in nature and is not expected to be
excessive.

Behind the front, high pressure will build into the region, reducing the
chances of rainfall through the upcoming weekend.

Next week, occasional disturbances passing through the region should bring a
return of rain to the area.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding lingers in the western basin and will continue to do so for
the next few days. Otherwise, the potential for additional flooding will be
low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain fell mainly across the southern, and along the western edge of the Ohio
Valley. Basin average amounts were generally a half inch or less, but some
portions of western Kentucky and Tennessee received basin averages closer to 2
inches.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is expected across the basin, but will not be very heavy. The only basin
average amounts forecast to be over 0.50 inch will fall in the far
southeastern Ohio Valley.
