...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Light snow will continue mainly in the southeast Ohio Valley today. This
activity will come to an end tonight setting up a quiet weather day
Wednesday. In fact, the rest of the week will be quiet under the influence of
high pressure. Temperatures will gradually moderate into the weekend,
culminating when a warm front lifts north through the region. A cold front
will bring more rain to the Ohio Valley next Monday.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The potential for new flooding is low this week with no liquid
precipitation or significant melt expected. However, local flooding caused
by ice jams is a possibility -- particularly in the northern half of the
service area.  The flood potential will increase early next week as
warmer/wetter conditions move in.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Widespread snow fell across the Ohio Valley. Most locations saw 1-4" of new
snowfall with liquid equivalent values from a few hundredths up to around
0.25".

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
A band of light snow is slowly dropping into the southeast Ohio Valley
today. Forecast liquid equivalent amounts are similar to yesterday with
between 0.05" and 0.30" expected in that area. The rest of the region
will be dry.

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