Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
927 AM EDT Wednesday, May 18, 2016

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Rain will be slowly exiting the Ohio Valley today as a trof pushes out of the
area. A ridge will briefly move across the basin giving mostly dry weather
later today and Thursday.

Thursday night and Friday a trof will approach the region from the southwestern
US. Moisture drawn into the Ohio Valley will provide persistent rainfall Friday
and Saturday--especially to the southeastern Ohio Valley.

Behind this system conditions will generally be dry through the early part of
next week.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
No flooding is expected at this time.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain fell over most of the basin. Amounts were generally very light, but there
was a band from central Kentucky through northern West Virginia where basin
averages ranged from 0.40 to 0.80.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain will mainly be confined to areas south of the Ohio River. Basin averages
will increase to the south with some sub-basins receiving 0.25 to 0.40 inch.

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