Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
112 PM EDT Friday, May 26, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
An area of high pressure traversing the area is providing a brief break in the
weather before a disturbance moves into the basin from the west overnight
tonight. Another low will move through the region from west to east on Sunday.

During the early part of next week, most of the unsettled weather will have
pushed southeast out of the basin, while a large area of low pressure remains
north of the Great Lakes. This will leave the Ohio Valley in between, with
below normal chances of rainfall. The latter half of next week appears to
return to unsettled conditions.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding is occurring or forecast across western and northern Indiana,
and moderate flooding continues around Decatur, Indiana. Forecast rainfall over
the weekend is not expected to produce flooding in other areas, but if rainfall
heavier than expected falls across the northwest Ohio Valley, some new minor
flooding is possible.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain fell over all but the western Ohio Valley. Most areas saw basin averages
less than 0.50 inches, but portions of northeastern Ohio, far western new York,
southern Ohio, eastern Kentucky and West Virginia saw basin averages range from
0.50 to 1.25 inches.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast across the entire basin. Amounts will generally increase to
the west with basin averages of 0.50 to 1.50 inches in portions of northwestern
Ohio, northern Indiana, eastern Illinois, southwestern Indiana, western
Kentucky and middle Tennessee.
