Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
931 AM EDT Thursday, April 17, 2014 

Conditions will be dry across the Ohio Valley today. Tonight, some light 
rains associated with an approaching cold front will reach the northwestern
corner of the basin. The front will weaken as it moves into the basin, so 
rainfall will be very spotty and light. 

Monday and Tuesday of next week will see another weather system move through
the basin. While rain will be more widespread, amounts are still expected 
to be modest at best.

Another system is forecast to move through the basin late next week, but 
rains with this event are also not expected to be excessive. 

Minor flooding remains on the lower parts of the White, Wabash, Little
Wabash, and Ohio Rivers.


Light amounts of less than 0.10 inch are forecast across the far northern 
portion of the basin, as well as limited portions of southern Illinois, 
western Kentucky and western Virginia.

Points along the following river basins were in flood Thursday morning:
