-Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1028 AM EST Thursday, November 23, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
High pressure will provide mainly dry conditions to the Ohio Valley for
Thanksgiving.  Snow showers are possible along the Lake Erie snowbelt.

A disturbance will move through the northern Great Lakes over the weekend,
but the only precipitation in the Ohio Valley will be some showers in the
far northeastern part of the basin.

A weather system will move across the Ohio Valley mid week, bringing light
widespread precipitation.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Some flooding from last weekend`s rainfall has already ended. Most rivers
still in flood are receding or at least nearing their crests.  With light
precipitation over the next week, the potential for new flooding is low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Precipitation amounts less than 0.10 inches fell across the northeast basin.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Amounts less than 0.10 inches are forecast across the northeast basin.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
