Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1224 PM EDT Sunday, July 27, 2014

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Warm, moist air remains in place over the Ohio Valley. A disturbance is
dropping southeast from the Northern Plains to the Great Lakes today,
dragging a cold front into the Ohio Valley.  The cold front will cross
the basin today through Monday, generating showers and thunderstorms as
it passes.  Rain is expected over the entire basin, with some moderate
rainfall amounts over the eastern Basin.

Once this system passes, cooler, drier air will settle over the eastern
U.S. for the first part of the week.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
River flood potential remains low.  However, rainfall amounts of
1.00 to 1.40 inch forecast over the eastern basin may cause rises
on some smaller streams and tributaries there.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain was spread across the entire basin, with the heaviest rain falling
on the western and eastern thirds.  Rainfall totals of 1.00 to around
2.50 inches were reported over the western and eastern thirds of the
basin.  Amounts of generally 0.75 inch and less were reported across
the center of the basin.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast over the entire Ohio Valley.  The heaviest rain is
expected over the eastern basin, with amounts of 1.00 to 1.40 inches
over eastern Kentucky, West Virginia, western Pennsylvania and southwest
New York state.  Lighter amounts are forecast over the remainder of the
basin.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
None.

Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1230 pm EDT Saturday, July 26, 2014

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A disturbance moving southeast across the Ohio Valley this morning
generated some showers and a few thunderstorms, mainly over Indiana.
With afternoon heating, more scattered showers and thunderstorms may
develop, mainly north of the Ohio River.

By late tonight, a more organized round of showers and thunderstorms will
be developing.  A stronger disturbance and a cold front will push east
across the basin late tonight through early Monday.  This system will
bring showers and thunderstorms, along with the potential for some areas
of heavy rain.

Once that system passes, cooler, drier air will settle over the eastern
U.S. for the first part of next week.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The chance for locally heavy rainfall tonight through Sunday will raise
the potential for some minor flooding, mainly across Indiana, southern
Ohio and into West Virginia.  Otherwise, river flood potential remains
low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain was scattered across areas north of the Ohio River, with some rain
also falling on the northern half of West Virginia.  Amounts ranged from
a maximum of 1.00 to 1.25 inch over part of west central Indiana, to 0.10
inch and less elsewhere.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain is forecast over the entire Ohio Valley.  The heaviest rain is
expected over West Virginia, where amounts of 1.50 to around 2.00 inches
are forecast.  Amounts of 1.00 to 1.50 inch are forecast over the southern
half of Indiana and southern Ohio.  Lighter amounts are forecast over the
remainder of the basin.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
None.
