Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1232 PM EDT Tuesday, March 31, 2015 

A weak disturbance is exiting the eastern basin today, producing a few
lingering showers.  Otherwise, conditions will be quiet until Thursday when
some showers and thunderstorms will develop ahead of an approaching cold
front.  The front will cross the basin Thursday night and Friday, resulting
in widespread precipitation. Significant rainfall amounts are possible. 
Conditions will quiet down for the weekend, but unsettled weather is expected 
for much of next week. 

Minor flooding continues at the bottom of the Little Wabash. Otherwise,
flooding across the remainder of the lower Ohio Valley has ended. The
threat will remain low the next few days, but heavy rains later this week
will likely lead to more flooding concerns, especially for the western Ohio

Light rain was observed across the northern basin. Amounts ranged from a
few hundredths up to around 0.20" near Lake Erie. 

Precipitation is forecast in the eastern Ohio Valley, with amounts under
0.25".  This activity will end tonight.  Showers could produce around 0.10"
in the southwest Ohio Valley Thursday morning. 

Points along the following river basins were in flood Tuesday morning:
 River Basin     Forecast Point   Flood Stage Latest Stg Tendency *
Little Wabash    Carmi                 27         28.3    Falling
