Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1148 AM EDT Thursday, June 29, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
The cool, dry weather of earlier in the week is giving way to warmer and
more moist conditions as flow turns more southerly. Gulf moisture streaming
into the Ohio Valley will fuel some scattered showers and storms in the
southern half of the basin. Meanwhile, a front approaching the basin from the
north will result in some storm activity along the northern edge of the basin.

The front will begin to sag southward through the basin late Friday and will
move to the southeast of the area by Saturday night. This feature will provide
widespread showers and storms to the Ohio Valley.

Behind the front Sunday should be mostly dry. By Monday a disturbance will
approach the area from the west and stir up some storm activity. This will
continue into Tuesday, resulting in chances of rain on Independence Day.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Some isolated minor flooding continues in southwestern Indiana. Rainfall over
the next couple days will produce river rises, but the only locations with any
potential for new minor flooding are on Indiana`s already high rivers.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Virtually none. Only a few hundredths of an inch of precipitation fell along
the northern edge of the Ohio Valley.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is expected across the entire Ohio Valley. Heaviest amounts will be along
the northern, western and southern edges of the basin where basin averages will
range from 0.75 to 1.25 inches.
