Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1027 AM EST Monday, December 11, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
More snow is expected in the Ohio Valley for the rest of this week.  Tonight a
strong storm will push into the basin, though it is rather moisture-starved.
Cold air behind it will bring heavy show in the usual lake-effect snow-prone
areas.  A second weaker system will follow on the heels of the first system and
affect the area Wednesday night into Thursday.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
River flows are currently at climatological minimums. Little if any liquid
precipitation or snowmelt is expected over the next week, keeping the potential
for any flooding very low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
The northeastern part of the service area along the Lake Erie shore has several
inches of snow yesterday, but most of the basin was precip-free.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Lake-effect snow will rekindle once the cold air re-surges over the Great Lakes
on Tuesday.  Elsewhere, light snow is expected as the next weather system moves
quickly through the area.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
None.
