Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1052 AM EDT Thursday, July 30, 2015

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A cold front that pushed through the Ohio Valley Wednesday and Wednesday night
will exit to the southeast early today. Showers and storms associated with the
front will also move out of the area.

Behind the front, high pressure will build into the region, reducing the
chances of rainfall for much of the region through the upcoming weekend.
A weak front will sag south into the northern Ohio Valley on Friday night, but
it is only expected to produce scattered showers.

Several weather disturbances are forecast to move through the area next week,
resulting in chances of rain for the entire Ohio Valley.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding lingers in the western basin and will continue to do so for
the next few days. Otherwise, the potential for additional flooding will be
low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain showers and storms were scattered across much of the basin. Heavy amounts
were very localized, though a larger area received basin averages in the 1.25
to 2.00 inch range in central West Virginia.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Light rain is forecast across the northern and eastern Ohio Valley. Basin
average amounts will be 0.20 inch or less.
