Hydrologic Statement
National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA
1118 AM EST Fri Jan 12 2018

Past 24 hour precipitation...
Widespread light to moderate rain has fallen across the region
during the past 24 hours. Rainfall amounts have ranged from
0.25 to 2.60 inches.

Forecast precipitation for the next 48 hours...
Basin average rainfall and/or liquid equivalent of snow is
forecast to range from 1.00 to 1.85 inches.

River trends...
Area rivers will rise sharply in respoonse to the rainfall
and snow melt. To complicate matters, ice has begun moving on
rivers and streams, making stage readings erratic. At this time,
no flooding is forecast. However, due to ice jamming, flooding
is a possibility.

Due to the recent frigid temperatures, ice has developed
on most area rivers and streams. This ice is affecting
the stage readings at many locations. The river forecasts
are based on what the river stage would be without the ice.

This text product /PITRVSPBZ/ will be issued routinely in the
morning, and on an as needed basis in the evening. The latest
forecast and observations are always available at:
water.weather.gov/ahps2/index.php?wfo=pbz

During flooding the latest crest updates may be obtained in river
Flood Warnings /PITFLWPBZ/ or river flood statements /PITFLSPBZ/.
