...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Though some rain lingers along the eastern edge of the Ohio Valley today,
conditions will continue to dry out as high pressure builds into the region.
By late Thursday night and early Friday, a low pressure system will drop south
from Canada and through the Great Lakes, the Ohio Valley and finally off the
mid-Atlantic coast on Saturday. This will bring rain and snow showers to the
northeast half of the Ohio Valley. Precipitation amounts will not be heavy.

Sunday and Monday will be dry as high pressure passes through the eastern US.

More significant rainfall is expected to set up by  mid-next week.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The flood potential is low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...

1.75 inches in southeastern Kentucky and southern West Virginia.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Today some light rain is expected in the eastern Ohio Valley. On Thursday
night, rain is expected in the northwestern portion of the basin. All of these
amounts will be light, at 0.15 inch or less.
