Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1104 AM EDT Sunday, August 28, 2016
Hot and humid conditions will continue for the next several days. Showers
and storms will be scattered across most of the basin. Without any distinct
feature to trigger storm activity, there is the potential for rain to develop
over any portion of the basin.
A cold front is expected to drop south through the Ohio Valley around next
Wednesday and Thursday. This will bring drier and cooler air and reduce the
chances for showers and storms.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding lingers on the lower Little Wabash in southeast Illinois but it
is expected to fall below flood stage later on Sunday. Elsewhere, the threat
of new flooding is low.
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Showers and storms affected much of Indiana and Ohio as well as middle
Kentucky, middle Tennessee and portions of West Virginia. Basin averages were
generally less than 0.50 inch, though some areas had locally higher amounts.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast over nearly all of the Ohio Valley. Basin averages in the
forecast are light due to the scattered nature of the rain and the lack of
confidence in placement of the rainfall.
...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
Points along the following river basins were in flood Sunday morning:
