1258 PM EDT Wednesday, March 29, 2017
Another in a parade of weather systems will be marching into the Ohio Valley
tonight. Rain will spread over nearly all the basin before the Friday morning,
and will exit the east on Friday.
Another system will march in right after the weekend.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The relatively wet pattern affecting the Ohio Valley will produce some
significant rises on area rivers, especially in the Wabash watershed, and the
potential for flooding increases with each new weather system.
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain lingered in the eastern basin yesterday and overnight, giving amounts of
mostly a half inch or less.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast across the entire OHRFC service area, though most of it will be
in the second day (daybreak Thursday to daybreak Friday). Amounts forecast are
generally an inch or less.
...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
