1221 PM EDT Wednesday, July 26, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Humidity has begun to return to the Ohio Valley and will continue to do so until
the passage of the next weather system, which is expected to begin moving into
the western basin tonight and out of the Eastern basin by Friday night.  After
this weather system, the region will once again dry out for several days.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor river flooding is occurring in western Indiana. The potential for
additional flooding is somewhat elevated in anticipation of some isolated storms
causing some flooding from extreme local runoff.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Some light rain (a few hundredths) fell in the northeastern basin while some
thunderstorms dropped isolated amounts of an inch or so in the southwestern
basin late yesterday.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
An inch of rain is forecast in much of the heart of the Ohio Valley through
Friday morning.  Some isolated areas will no doubt see a couple of inches..

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
