A cold front will move across the Ohio Valley today and tonight. Ahead of the

conditions are expected to be dry, with the exception of some scattered showers
across the northern Ohio Valley. A weak disturbance moving across the Great
Lakes Thursday will result in continued scattered showers across the northern
portion of the basin. Otherwise, conditions will be dry through the end of the
week and the weekend.

Watershed saw basin average amounts in the 1.00 to 3.00 inch range.
