...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Low pressure over the northern Ohio Valley late Wednesday morning will
slowly move eastward today and tonight. While most of the significant rainfall
will move east of the area today, some light rain will be slow to clear out of
the eastern Ohio Valley, possibly lingering through Thursday.

High pressure will keep the Ohio Valley mostly dry Friday and Saturday. Next
chance of widespread precipitation looks to occur Sunday when a cold front
will push through the region.

Next week conditions are expected to be mostly dry.

flooding remains low.
