Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
139 PM EDT Thursday, July 27, 2017

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A stormy pattern has invaded the Ohio Valley this morning and the threat of rain
will linger in the Eastern part of the basin through the weekend.  Dry weather
will follow next week for most of the week, but significant rainfall amounts
could occur with the current weather system.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor river flooding is lingering still in western Indiana. The potential for
additional flooding is somewhat elevated in anticipation of the current weather
system bringing heavy rainfall to the area...particularly the eastern half of
the basin.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain fall of over an inch had already occurred this morning prior to 8 AM EDT.
Lesser amounts were scattered over the remaining basin.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Two and a half inches of rain are forecast through 48 hours in the eastern part
of the service area.  This is due mostly to the lingering threat of
thunderstorms through the entire 2-day period.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
Points along the following river basins were in flood Thursday morning:
