moisture increases and a series of upper disturbances begin to march
across the Ohio Valley.  Showers and thunderstorms will continue into next

flooding will increase this weekend into next week.

in northern KY, southeast OH, and WV.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Showers and thunderstorms are forecast mainly across the northwest basin
with up to 0.40" expected on average.  Locally heavier amounts are possible.
