Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1222 PM EDT Sunday, June 25, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Low pressure moving through the Great Lakes will spark some showers in the
northern basin the next couple days. Otherwise, conditions will remain
quiet with below normal temperatures.  A cold front arriving late Monday
could generate more widespread showers and storms into Tuesday. However, with
a relatively dry airmass in place rainfall amounts should be modest.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding continues across much of Indiana from the recent heavy
rainfall event. Elsewhere, many rivers remain elevated but flooding has
subsided. With relatively dry weather in the forecast for the next several
days, the threat of additional flooding will be low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Isolated showers across the eastern half of the region produced around
0.10" or less. The large majority of the basin was dry.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Scattered showers in the northern basin could produce up to a half inch in
spots, but generally speaking amounts will be much lighter. Showers
developing along a cold front Monday night are forecast to produce around
0.25" or less in the middle and southern Ohio Valley.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
