Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1247 PM EDT Sunday, April 13, 2014

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Wetter weather will return to the Ohio Valley before turning colder on Monday.
Showers and thunderstorms will overspread the region beginning tonight as a cold
front pushes from west to each tonight through Monday.  Sharply color air will
rush in behind the front and turn the rain to snow in many parts of the Ohio
Valley before it ends on Tuesday.  Some areas are likely to see minor
accumulations.  But the warm air rebounds by the end of the week before the next
shot of rain by Friday.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor to moderate flooding continues across much of the western part of the Ohio
Valley.  Some new flooding is possible after the rainfall over the next two
days.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rainfall early this morning in central and eastern Ohio was mainly less than a
tenth of an inch.  Little if any fell elsewhere.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain tonight and continuing into Tuesday morning is forecast to amount to a half
to one inch in the western two-thirds of the Ohio Valley, with slightly less
than a half inch expected in the eastern third.
