...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Drier weather than expected has moved into the Ohio Valley.  Much of the rain
expected this week so far hasn`t materialized.  Thunderstorm activity is still
expected in the Appalachians this afternoon but the rainfall won`t be as broad
as was forecast yesterday.  Significant rainfall will return Wednesday night and
Thursday and linger in the southeastern half of the basin through the weekend.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Flooding is already occurring in parts of the Ohio Valley (see below).  New
flooding or worsening is possible with the developing thunderstorm activity
later this week.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Areas east of Cleveland has over an inch of rain overnight, but the majority of
the basin was dry yesterday and overnight.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rainfall forecast through just after daybreak on Thursday is expected to be
greatest in the Appalachians today and tonight, and in the northwest basin on
Wednesday night.  Amounts could be up to an inch.
