Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1135 AM EDT Sunday, June 28, 2015
Upper level low pressure from this past weekend`s powerful frontal system
continues to churn scattered light showers for the northeast Ohio River
forecast basin. These will continue to swath through northeast Ohio, western
PA, and SW New York for the next 6 to 12 hours before the low finally moves off
to the east and out of the basin.
For the beginning of the work week, another piece of energy will dip into the
Midwest trough and on into the western basin. This will bring widespread
showers to Indiana, eastern Illinois and western Ohio for during the day on
Monday. Added instability to the forecast basin will bring a chance of scattered
showers and occasional thunderstorms for much of the week.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Flooding is occurring in widespread areas of the northern and northwestern
Ohio River forecast basin.
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
The past 24 hours saw very heavy rainfall in the northern basin...particularly
along Lake Erie. Due to the stalling upper low yesterday, rain fell continually
over the Maumee watershed...totaling 3 to 5 inches when all was said and done.
Amounts over an inch and cores over two inches were observed in widespread areas
of the northern and northeastern basin.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
A large basin average of half inch to three-quarters of an inch in Indiana and
eastern Illinois. Lower totals forecast of a quarter of an inch or so for the
rest of the western basin. Certainly some cores will be higher.
...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
