...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
An active weather pattern is setting up in the Ohio Valley through the rest of
this week. The focus of this activity will likely be from northwest Ohio to
central West Virginia. Some of these thunderstorm clusters may be rather
strong.  Hotter weather beginning over the weekend will put an end to most of
this activity.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The potential for river flooding is generally low. Some flash flooding is
possible in areas that see locally heavy rains, or repeated rainfall.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain upwards of two inches fell in northeastern Ohio overnight.  Other parts of
the basin did not have these extreme amounts of rainfall.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast across the entire basin before dawn on Friday.  Ohio and West
Virginia are expected to have the most, with about an inch, on average.
