Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1139 AM EST Sunday, January 22, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Low pressure over Dixie today will gradually move eastward and then northeast
up the Atlantic coast Monday and Tuesday. Significant moisture will be drawn
into the Ohio Valley, especially the eastern half.

Warmer than normal temperatures will remain over the basin until Wednesday when
a cold front pushes through the region. This pattern change will bring cooler
and drier conditions for at least the next couple of weeks.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding will continue on many of the western rivers in the Ohio Valley.
Rainfall tonight and Monday will allow rivers to rise again, raising the
potential for some additional minor flooding in portions of northern Ohio.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain was scattered around the Ohio Valley. Most amounts were fairly light at
less than 0.25 inches.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is expected across all of the Ohio Valley. Basin averages will increase to
the southeast. Amounts greater than a half inch are generally forecast east of
a line from Nashville to Columbus to Cleveland. Portions of eastern Tennessee,
eastern Kentucky, West Virginia and far western Virginia will see basin
averages range from 1.00 to 1.75 inch.
