Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1250 PM EST Thursday, November 27, 2014

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Light snow over various parts of the Ohio Valley today are not expected to
amount to much, except in the Appalachians ridges and just downwind of Lake Erie
where light accumulations may occur later today and tonight.  Some light rain
is possible over the weekend, especially on Sunday.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding is under way in the Wabash and White watersheds in the northwest
Ohio Valley. Otherwise, the threat of new flooding is low this week.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Less than a half inch of precipitation fell in the eastern and southern portions
of the basin.  Most of this was snow, and greatest amounts were in the higher
elevations of the Appalachians.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
A quarter inch is forecast just downwind of Lake Erie.  Otherwise, precip
amounts should be mostly less than a tenth of an inch.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
Points along the following river basins were in flood Thursday morning:
 River Basin     Forecast Point   Flood Stage Latest Stg Tendency *
Wabash River     West Lafayette        11         14.0    Falling

Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1223 PM EST Wednesday, November 26, 2014

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A snowstorm affecting the Appalachians today will give several inches of snow to
that region, which will melt again over the weekend and contribute to flows
in the eastern rivers.  The remainder of the next week looks to be lacking of
significant weather systems, with the possible exception of some models showing
a moderate event during midweek, but not all models show this.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding is under way in the Wabash and White watersheds in the northwest
Ohio Valley. Otherwise, the threat of new flooding is low this week.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
A inch or more of melted precipitation fell in the New River Basin overnight,
but the remainder of the Appalachians area had mostly a quarter inch or less
through daybreak this morning.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Snow will continue in the Appalachians this afternoon and evening.  Another weak
system will bring some light snow and rain to the southern basin this afternoon
and evening.  Only a half inch or less is expected in the area affected by both
of these precip-makers.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
Points along the following river basins were in flood Wednesday morning:
 River Basin     Forecast Point   Flood Stage Latest Stg Tendency *
Wabash River     West Lafayette        11         14.7    Falling
Wabash River     Covington             16         17.9    Rising

Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1243 PM EST Tuesday, November 25, 2014

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
High pressure will keep the basin dry today. A developing storm system will
begin to advance up the Eastern Seaboard tonight. Snow will clip the eastern
third of the Ohio Valley through midweek, but the heaviest amounts will
remain east of the basin.  An additional disturbance approaching from the
west could bring some light rain/snow the middle and southern basin
Wednesday night/Thursday. The next rain event is shaping up to begin this
weekend as a front stalls over the region.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
Minor flooding is forecast or occurring in the Wabash and White watersheds
in the northwest Ohio Valley. Otherwise, the threat of additional flooding
is low this week.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
A narrow stripe of rain extended up through the western and middle Ohio
Valley with between 0.25" to 0.75".  Other areas received 0.10" or less.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Snow will impact the eastern Ohio Valley with the heaviest totals exceeding
0.50" of liquid equivalent in the southeast. A light rain/snow mix could
produce 0.05" to 0.20" across IL, southern IN, KY, and TN.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
Points along the following river basins were in flood Tuesday morning:
 River Basin     Forecast Point   Flood Stage Latest Stg Tendency *
