Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1139 AM EDT Friday, October 31, 2014 

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
A low pressure system will dive southeast across the basin today into early
Saturday. Widespread precipitation is expected, but amounts should be
fairly light. Behind the front, an unseasonably cold airmass will pour into
the Ohio Valley, likely changing rain showers over to snow showers overnight
tonight. Precipitation will eventually taper off Saturday as high pressure 
begins to move in for Sunday/Monday.  The next system is expected to bring
more rain to the basin Tuesday/Wednesday. 

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The flood potential is low.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY'S RIVER FORECASTS...
In general, light rainfall amounts of 0.10" or less fell across the western
2/3rds of the Ohio Valley. 

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY'S RIVER FORECASTS...
Precipitation is expected for all but a tiny sliver of the western Ohio
Valley. Amounts will generally range from 0.10" to 0.50" with the higher
end totals forecast in the southeast basin. Locally heavier amounts up to
0.75" are possible there.

None.
