Not much at all in the way of precipitation over the next 12-24 hours.
Over the weekend, a series of convective waves could traverse the
northern basin, bringing a chance of some locally moderate to heavy rain.
However, a strong cold front will sweep the Ohio Forecast basin clean on Monday
into Tuesday. This will bring about unseasonably cooler weather and also dry
weather for the bulk of next week.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The potential for flooding is low. The weekend could bring about some locally
heavy showers, but that is the basin`s only chance really over the next 7 to 8
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Small area of scattered showers fell through eastern KY and western WV.
Otherwise zero through most of the Ohio Valley.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Three-quarters of an inch is the max forecast along the northwest periphery.
These amounts taper quickly as one heads further south into the basin.
