A couple of days of precip-free weather is expected in the Ohio Valley. Some
rain will begin to skirt the northwest edge of the basin beginning Thanksgiving
Day, but won`t push earnestly into the Ohio Valley until Friday. This will mark
the beginning of a prolonged period of rain in the basin for the following week
as several low pressure waves periodically move through the region through at
least midweek next week. Some of that rain could be heavy and so the state of
the basin will become quite moist over the next week.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The flood potential is currently low, but will increase through next week
starting on Friday.
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Scattered snow showers produced light amounts across the northeastern part of
the Ohio Valley.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Some rain (a hundredth or two) may move into the northwest basin before daybreak
on Thanksgiving Day.
...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
