Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
926 AM EDT Wednesday, October 18, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
High pressure will dominate the eastern US weather picture this week, resulting
in little, if any, precipitation over the Ohio Valley through at least
Saturday.

On Sunday into Monday a significant cold front will push through the region.
Gulf moisture will be drawn northward into the Ohio Valley ahead of and along
the front. This will result in a dose of rainfall for the entire area. It will
also bring a shift from the warm pattern that the area has enjoyed through
most of October, to a colder than normal pattern. The basin will likely see its
first snow showers of the season by mid-next week, possibly with some light
accumulations in the north.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
There is no potential for flooding through this weekend.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
None.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
None.

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