Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1146 AM EDT Saturday, March 28, 2015

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Though a few snow showers will affect the northeast Ohio Valley today, high
pressure over the basin will generally keep conditions dry, though below normal
in temperature.

A quick moving cold front will push through the basin late Sunday to early
Monday bringing light showers, mostly in the form of rain, to much
of the basin.

The next chance for any significant rain appears to be late next week, but it
is too early to tell whether any rainfall will be excessive.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Flooding continues in the lower Ohio Valley. The potential for any additional
flooding is low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Snow showers affected the eastern Ohio Valley. Basin average liquid-equivalent
amounts were generally less than 0.10 inch.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
The entire basin will see precipitation on Sunday and Sunday night. Basin
average amounts will be 0.15 inch or less across the area.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
Points along the following river basins were in flood Saturday morning:
