Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
143 PM EDT Saturday, April 12, 2014

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Some showers could affect the northern and northwestern parts of the service
area through Sunday, but rain won`t begin in earnest until way late on Sunday
evening or early Monday morning.  This activity will spread across the basin on
Monday and will produce about a half to an inch of rain across the region.
Colder air will follow and many parts of the Ohio Valley might see a light
coating of snow by daybreak on Tuesday.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor to moderate flooding continues across much of the western part of the Ohio
Valley.  New flooding is possible after the weather even t early next week.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rainfall yesterday in the eastern basin amounted to generally a quarter inch or
less, though some small areas had over a half inch.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
The basin will stay mostly dry until Sunday night in the west as a cold front
approaches that region.

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