Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
952 AM EDT Tuesday, October 17, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
High pressure will dominate the eastern US weather picture this week, resulting
in little, if any, precipitation over the Ohio Valley through at least
Saturday.

On Sunday into Monday a significant cold front will push through the region.
This will result in a dose of rainfall for the entire area, but will also
introduce a shift from the warm pattern that the area has enjoyed through most
of October, to a colder than normal pattern. The basin will likely see its
first snow showers next week, possibly with some light accumulations in the
north.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The threat of flooding is extremely low through this weekend.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Some light rain showers affected mainly the eastern Ohio Valley. Portions of
western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and northern West Virginia received basin
averages of less than 0.10 inch.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
None.

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