More thunderstorm activity will redevelop in the Ohio Valley this afternoon.
This week is expected to be an active week with thunderstorms clusters being
common in the Ohio Valley through Friday. Where these occur is still to be
determined, but the northeast half of the basin will probably end up with the
most rain by the end of the week. Several of these thunderstorm clusters may be
rather strong. Hotter weather beginning over the weekend will put an end to
most of this activity.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The potential for river flooding is generally low. Some flash flooding is
possible in areas that see locally heavy rains, or repeated rainfall.
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain upwards of an inch was common in the southeastern basin. Remaining areas
had lighter amounts, or none.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast across the entire basin before dawn on Thursday. Indiana is
expected to have the most, with about an inch and a half, on average.
