Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1127 AM EDT Saturday, June 17, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Today, most shower and storm activity will be confined to the far western and
far eastern portions of the Ohio Valley, where deeper moisture is available.
Late tonight and during the day Sunday a cold front will push through the
basin, producing widespread showers and storms.

Cooler and drier conditions will be the rule for the beginning of next week.
As the week progresses, temperatures will moderate to more normal levels and
moisture will move back into the region increasing the chances for rainfall.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The potential for flooding from new rainfall will be elevated starting Sunday,
but some river flooding is still forecast in the western basin from recent
rainfall.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Showers and storms were mainly confined to the northern and eastern portions of
the basin. Amounts were generally light, but Some local areas in West Virginia
and western Virginia saw basin averages around an inch.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast across the entire basin. Heaviest amounts will be along an
axis from middle Tennessee through eastern Kentucky, southwestern Ohio, western
West Virginia, western Pennsylvania and far western New York. Basin averages
along this line will range from 1.00 to nearly 1.75 inches.
