Ohio River Basin Hydrometeorological Discussion
Ohio River Forecast Center, Wilmington, Ohio
1235 PM EDT Saturday, May 2, 2015
High pressure will dominate the Ohio Valley this weekend. The next chance
for showers and thunderstorms will arrive on Monday as a front sags into
the basin from the north. High pressure over the Southeast US will prevent
the front from making much headway into the basin. Strengthening high
pressure mid to late week will weaken the front and keep the basin mostly dry
with above normal temperatures.
...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
The flood potential is low.
...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Showers produced a few hundredths up to about a quarter inch in the far
southeast basin. The remainder of the Ohio Valley was dry.
...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rain may advance into the northwest basin Sunday night ahead of the
front. Basin-average amounts will remain light under 0.10" through early
Monday morning. Otherwise, dry conditions are forecast.
