Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1245 PM EDT Monday, June 29, 2015

Low pressure remains over the eastern US. A disturbance will lift through the
northwestern Ohio Valley today, providing a significant dose of rain to the
middle of the Ohio Valley. Scattered showers will remain a possibility on
Tuesday as well.

By Wednesday, a low pressure system will begin a slow track across the southern
Ohio Valley. This will enhance chances of rainfall along and south of the Ohio
River through the remainder of the work week.

Flooding is occurring in widespread areas of the northern and northwestern
Ohio River forecast basin. With rain continuing across the Ohio Valley,
elevated stages will be slow to fall.

Rain fell across the northern Ohio Valley, with heaviest basin average amounts
across central Illinois and central Indiana where they ranged from 0.50 to
around an inch.

Rain is forecast across the entire basin, but amounts will be most significant
across portions of Ohio and northern Kentucky. Basin averages in this area
will range from 0.75 to 1.25 inches.

Points along the following river basins were in flood Monday morning:
