Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
954 AM EDT Wednesday, April 16, 2014
High pressure over the basin today will provide precipitation-free weather.
Dry conditions will continue until at least Friday. At that time a
weak wave will move through the basin providing some light precipitation. It
will not be until early next week that we see a return of more significant
rainfall, but even that does not look to be excessive.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding remains on the lower parts of the White, Wabash, Little
Wabash, and Ohio Rivers.
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Precipitation fell mainly over the eastern half of the Ohio Valley, though the
northwest saw some light showers as well. Amounts increased to the east with
some portions of western Pennsylvania and far western Virginia receiving
near half-inch amounts.
