Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1248 PM EDT Sunday, May 28, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Showers and storms will affect the Ohio Valley today. A low pressure system
will move through the Great Lakes from west to east on Sunday. An associated
cold front will push through the basin with it. A secondary, weaker front will
drop through the basin on Monday, but with limited rain shower activity.

During the first half of this week the Ohio Valley will see only light rainfall
activity. The latter half of next week appears to return to more unsettled
conditions.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding is occurring or forecast across western and northern Indiana.
Forecast rainfall is not expected to produce flooding in other areas, but if
rainfall heavier than expected falls across the northwest Ohio Valley, some
new minor flooding is possible.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain fell across mainly the southern two-thirds of the Ohio Valley. Basin
averages were highest over portions of Kentucky and Tennessee where they ranged
from 0.75 to 2.00 inches.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast over the entire basin. Amounts increase to the east with basin
averages ranging from 0.75 to 1.00 inch in portions of eastern Ohio, western
Pennsylvania and eastern West Virginia.
