Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
244 PM EDT Saturday, July 30, 2016

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Another round of mainly afternoon and evening thunderstorms are expected in the
Ohio Valley again today and Sunday.  Most of the basin will dry out next week,
except for the western basin where nightly thunderstorms are still a good
possibility.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
River flooding from new rainfall is unlikely in the basin, but areas that see
persistent thunderstorms could trigger some quick localized or headwater
flooding.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Thunderstorms were common in many parts of the Ohio Valley yesterday afternoon
and evening with three quarters of the service area receiving rain and some
isolated areas having more than 3 inches.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Forecast rainfall is expected to average a half to three quarters of an inch in
some parts of the northern half of the basin, though certainly heavier amounts
will fall in random locations.  Lighter amounts overall are expected in the
southern half.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
None.
