Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1239 PM EDT Thursday, May 5, 2016

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Cloudiness will linger over most of the Ohio Valley today, but rainfall has
diminished to just the Appalachians by Thursday afternoon.  An active weather
pattern over the next 10 days or so will keep the threat of rain in the Ohio
Valley about every two or three days.  But none of this looks to be a heavy rain
event.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The potential for any new flooding from expected rainfall is low through the
weekend.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Much of the Ohio Valley had rainfall of a half inch or less, although small
areas throughout the basin had amounts a half inch and one inch..

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
The Appalachians could still receive an inch of rain during the daylight hours
today, but the rain is mostly over for the remaining areas through the end of
the week.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
Points along the following river basins were in flood Thursday morning:
