Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
213 PM EDT Saturday, June 24, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Yesterday, a cold front interacted with the remnants of T.S. Cindy to produce
widespread ,heavy rainfall. The front cleared the region this morning,
leaving drier and calmer weather in its wake. A couple weak areas of low
pressure sliding through the Great Lakes could cause some showers in the
northern basin the next couple days. Another cold front early next week
could spark additional shower activity, but with a dry airmass already in
place, rainfall amounts will be modest.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding is forecast or occurring in parts of KY, IN, and eastern IL.
No moderate flooding is forecast at this time. With drier weather in the
forecast for the next several days, the flood potential will decrease as
we head into next week.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Heavy rain fell in eastern IL, IN, central/southern OH, KY, northern WV,
and southwest PA. Amounts ranged from 1-4" in these areas. The extreme
northern and southern parts of the Ohio Valley saw the lightest amounts with
mostly under 0.50" on average with only locally heavier totals.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Showers in the far southern basin and across the northern third could
produce around a tenth of an inch or less on average. The majority of the
region will be dry.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
