A deep upper low will keep snow showers scattered throughout the basin
through midweek. A decrease in activity is forecast each day as high pressure
builds into the Ohio Valley by Thursday. On Friday, a clipper-type system is
expected to move through the basin providing another dose of snow showers.
Temperatures are expected to remain below normal through early next week.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding is occurring along the lower Ohio River due to previous
rainfall. Otherwise, cold temperatures and a lack of rainfall will keep the
flood potential very low in the Ohio Valley.
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain and snow showers fell across much of the region. Amounts were heaviest
in WV and OH with generally between 0.25" to 0.50" recorded. Outside of
these areas amounts were 0.25" or less.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Light snow showers are forecast throughout much of the basin. Liquid
equivalent amounts will top out around 0.10" for the western and central Ohio
Valley, while the eastern basin should see between 0.10" to 0.40".
