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

Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1229 PM EDT Thursday, May 28, 2015 

Moisture remains over the southern Ohio Valley, so scattered showers and storms
are most likely in that region. Moisture will gradually be building back into
the basin from the south over the next couple of days, expanding the region
with the potential for rain. 

On Friday night and into the weekend a slow moving cold front will begin to
push into the basin from the west. It's slow progression will increase the
potential for excessive rainfall in any given area.  The potential for heavy
rain appears to be higher to the south of the Ohio River. 

In the short term, the potential for river flooding will remain low. Rains over
the weekend may be heavy. There is some potential for minor flooding in the
rivers of the northwest Ohio Valley...specifically in Indiana where it will
take less rainfall to produce minor flooding.

While rains were scattered across much of the Ohio Valley, they were most
significant across the northern half of Ohio and in middle Kentucky and middle
Tennessee. Basin average in these areas were as high as a 1.00 to 1.75 inch

Rain is forecast over the entire Ohio Valley. Amounts will be higher to the
south and west where they will range from 0.25 to 0.50 inch.


Forecast precipitation graphics are available on the OHRFC Website
