Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
126 PM EST Monday, December 2, 2013
A strong cold front will approach the region on Wednesday. This will push
through much of the Ohio Valley but will stall in Tennessee. Then a couple of
waves of low pressure will move along it and bring much rainfall to the
southeastern half of the Ohio River Valley into the weekend. An accumulating
snowfall can be expected on the northern edge of the precipitation area. Before
a brief break from the rain Saturday into Sunday, more rain will return late
Sunday to the southern basin and push northward through Monday. Again, the
southeastern portion of the basin will be the hardest hit region.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The flood potential in the Ohio Valley is low through Wednesday. Then, the
potential for river flooding will rise significantly in the southeastern half of
the Ohio Valley.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Most areas in the Ohio Valley will see very light precipitation over the next 2
days, but none of this is expected to be hydrologically significant.
