1052 AM EDT Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Normal summer-time conditions are expected to continue today with scattered
showers and thunderstorms lingering over the eastern high terrain this
afternoon/evening. The next disturbance will be a cold front arriving
Wednesday. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to move into the
northwest basin tonight and spread across the rest of the basin Wednesday
as the front sags south and east. Cooler, drier air will then spill into the
basin for the end of the work week. Unsettled weather will return for the
weekend, followed by another round of cooler air next week.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Flood potential remains relatively low.
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Isolated showers and storms fell in the higher terrain of the southern
and eastern Ohio Valley. Some heavy rain of 1-3" fell in very localized
areas. Otherwise, a large majority of the Ohio Valley was dry.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Widespread showers and storms are forecast as a cold front dips into the
basin. Forecast amounts generally range from 0.10" to 0.75" for much of the
region. Locally heavier amounts will likely result from thunderstorms.
