...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Over the next few days, a building ridge of high pressure will provide
quiet weather and moderating temperatures. A warm front arriving this weekend
may generate some light rain, but it is not until Monday when the trailing
cold front arrives that any meaningful rainfall is expected.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The potential for 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 steadily increase this weekend as snow melt increases
coinciding with a widespread rain event on Monday.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Snow showers mainly affected the far southeast Ohio Valley. Liquid
equivalent amounts were around 0.25" or less. The majority of the region
was dry, or saw only trace amounts due to flurries.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Zero.

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