Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
240 PM EDT Monday, June 19, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A couple weak disturbances pivoting around low pressure over southeast
Canada will spark some scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly across
the northern Ohio Valley the next few days.  Otherwise, conditions will be
cooler and drier. By mid-week temperatures will gradually moderate
to more normal levels.

Late in the week a front will approach the basin from the northwest.
During next weekend the front will move through the basin, likely
interacting with deep Gulf moisture, resulting in very moist conditions.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Some river flooding is still forecast/occurring in western Indiana from
recent rainfall. Additional rainfall is not likely to produce any new river
flooding the rest of the week. However, by next weekend the flood threat
will increase once again.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
A slow moving cold front produced heavy rainfall across a large swatch of
the basin. Many locations from the northeast basin down to the lower Ohio
Valley received between 0.50" to 2.00". Locally heavier amounts over 3"
were observed. The northwest basin saw the lightest amounts with zero to
0.10" reported.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Amounts from 0.25" to 0.75" are forecast in the southeast basin, otherwise
totals should remain below 0.25" on average.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
Points along the following river basins were in flood Monday morning:
