...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...

Deep tropical moisture has pushed southward and is confined only to the
Cumberland watershed in the Ohio River Basin. Afternoon thunderstorms
could develop in this very tropical airmass. Out east in the upper
Ohio Valley...a shortwave trough moving through the Great Lakes will
trigger scattered storms this afternoon.

Late in the week...a cold front will push through the Ohio River
Basin producing the next chance for widespread significant rainfall.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...

Minor river flooding is occurring in western Indiana and isolated minor
flooding in northern Ohio.

Later in the week...flood potential will be elevated across far
northern watersheds where conditions have been very wet.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...

Rainfall was less organized during the last 24 hours than the past 2
days. Scattered storms on Sunday produced locally heavy totals in excess
of 2 inches...but generally rainfall amounts were less than 1 inch.

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

less than 2/10 inch in the Upper Ohio Valley as well as the Cumberland
Basin.
