Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1228 PM EDT Thursday, July 10, 2014
Cold front is currently exiting the basin in the far southeast. Dry weather is
taking its place, with not much of note precipitation-wise for the next 48
hours. Over the weekend, a series of convective waves could traverse the
northern basin, bringing a chance of some locally moderate to heavy rain.
However, a strong cold front will sweep the Ohio Forecast basin clean on Monday
into Tuesday. This will bring about unseasonably cooler weather and also dry
weather for the bulk of next week.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The potential for flooding is low. The weekend could bring about some locally
heavy showers, but that is the basin`s only chance really over the next 7 to 8
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
A few areas of scattered showers fell across the northeast and southeast
portions of the basin. Amounts, overall, were relatively light with only a few,
small cores reaching an inch or higher. Most other locations were a quarter of
an inch or less.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Only light amounts forecasted....a tenth or two or less along the western and
eastern fringes of the Ohio River forecast basin.
