Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1152 AM EDT Wednesday, July 1, 2015
An upper trough of low pressure will linger over the Ohio Valley this week.
A series of disturbances will dive across the southern basin the next
several days. This will result in some significant rainfall totals south of
the Ohio River. Heaviest amounts are forecast in TN and southern KY. Much
welcomed drier conditions are in store for the northern basin.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Flooding is occurring throughout much of the northern and western
Ohio River forecast basin. The focus for heavier rain will shift to the
southern part of the basin the next couple days bringing relief to the
flooded areas, but also an increased flood threat across the south.
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Scattered showers and thunderstorms affected much of the region. Locally
heavy rain of 1" to 2.50" fell in the strongest storms. A large part of the
western basin was dry.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Showers and thunderstorms will primarily fall across the southern basin and
to a lesser extent the central Ohio Valley. Much of the northern third of
the basin will be dry. Forecast amounts of 1" to 2.50" are expected across
southern Ky and TN. Locally heavier amounts are possible in t-storms.
