...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
With cold air over the Ohio Valley for the next week, any precipitation falling
in the region is going to be in the form of snow.  But only minor weather
systems are forecast during this cold period.  Parts of the Appalachians and
just downwind of Lake Erie is likely to have a bit more snow than anywhere else.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
River flows are currently at climatological minimums. Little if any liquid
precipitation or snowmelt is expected over the next week, keeping the potential
for any flooding very low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Some measurable snow fell in southwestern New York and northwestern Pennsylvania
just downwind of Lake Erie. Elsewhere, flurries were observed, but nothing
measurable.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
A tenth or so of liquid-equivalent snowfall is forecast over much of the Ohio
Valley late tonight and Saturday.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
None.
