A disturbance is currently lying over the Ohio valley bringing occasional
showers and thunderstorms to many areas of the basin. Except for the far
southern and southeast fringes, these showers are tending to be fairly light.
The far western and northwestern fringes should stay relatively dry over the
next 36 to 48 hours. Summer returns early next week with warmer temperatures
and increased humidity, along with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Flood potential remains relatively low. Some localized thunderstorms in the
far southern reaches of the basin could give some rises to the smaller creeks

to three-quarters of an inch.

totals run about a half in ch to three-quarters inches. Amounts taper down to
