Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1110 AM EDT Thursday, July 23, 2015

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A disturbance will continue to bring showers and storms to the southern Ohio
Valley today. High pressure increasing in the basin Friday and Saturday will
keep conditions dry during that time.

Chances of rain will return to the basin Sunday as cold front drops into the
basin from north of the area late in the weekend.

Another cold front will push south through the basin late next week. Moisture
drawn out of the Gulf of Mexico ahead of this front is expected to provide more
significant amounts of rain to the southeastern half of the Ohio Valley.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Flood potential will remain elevated due to existing flooding. New flooding is
not likely for the foreseeable future.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain fell over western Kentucky, middle Tennessee and far western Virginia.
Basin averages were generally light, though some local basins in middle
Tennessee received around 2 inches of rain.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain will be confined south of the Ohio River. Basin averages in Kentucky,
Tennessee and far western Virginia will range up to 0.50 inch.
