...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Significant changes are underway for the Ohio Valley.  A cold front pushing
through the heart of the Ohio Valley this morning will continue to push through
the region today.  Rain rain associated with the front will spread across the
eastern part of the Ohio Valley this afternoon.  Light rain will linger in the
area through Wednesday and the cold air filters in over the Great Lakes before
entering the Ohio Valley.  The chilly air will moderate some by late in the work
week, but this pattern will repeat again over the weekend.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The threat of flooding will increase early this week as the rain moves through.
Areas experiencing heavier rainfall will see significant rises on some rivers,
but no flooding is forecast at this time.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
One to two inches of rain fell overnight in the western quarter of the service
area, but none yet fell on most of the eastern half before 8am EDT.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Widespread rain is forecast with some areas in the north and southeast parts of
the basin expecting over 2 inches of rain before daybreak on Wednesday.

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