Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1240 PM EDT Sunday, July 5, 2015

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A low pressure system moving through the Ohio Valley today and Monday will
bring more widespread precipitation into the southeastern half of the Ohio
Valley.

A cold front is expected to sweep across the region on Tuesday bringing
more widespread precipitation to the entire basin. The front is expected to
stall over the region, but remain a focus for active weather as it oscillates
over the basin through the end of the week and into the upcoming weekend.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor to moderate flooding continues across the western and northwestern
Ohio Valley as well as in western Kentucky. The potential for any additional
flooding is low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain fell generally south of the Ohio River and east of the Allegheny River.
Amounts were generally light, but middle Tennessee and portions of southeast
Kentucky saw basin averages in the 0.75 to 2.00 inch range.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is expected over much of the Ohio Valley, though the area in the vicinity
of the Indiana/Ohio border is the least likely to see rain. Amounts will
mostly be light, but totals will range from 0.75 to 1.00 inch in southern West
Virginia and far western Virginia.
