Hydrometeorological Discussion


The following is a daily text product issued by the OHRFC:

Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1024 AM EDT Saturday, August 30, 2014 

Deep gulf moisture will be drawn into the Ohio Valley providing numerous
showers and storms across the region. These will move gradually from west to
east across the basin today through Sunday. A frontal boundary will then 
arrive late Monday and Tuesday. This feature will also bring unsettled
conditions as it moves through, but high pressure behind the front will bring
a temporary return of relatively cooler and drier conditions until late in week
when heat and moisture will begin returning to the Ohio Valley. 

Flood potential is currently low. Chances for localized flooding/flash
flooding will increase late this weekend into next week.

Showers and storms were scattered mostly across the western Ohio Valley, but
also in parts of western Ohio, eastern Kentucky, western Virginia and West
Virginia. Basin averages were generally light, but some in northwestern Indiana
were around 0.50 inch.

Over the next 2 days, rainfall is expected across the entire forecast area.
Basin average amounts will increase to the southwest with a range of 1.00 to
1.75 inches in middle Kentucky and middle Tennessee. 


Forecast precipitation graphics are available on the OHRFC Website
