Staff Recommended Posts

CLE forecast area goes under a Flood Watch for 1 - 1.5” of rain.

This is video of the mill creek by my house as I pass over it. Normally it’s not half this high and this is the highest I’ve seen it in quite some time. I don’t know it’s flood patterns or how long it’s been since it’s gotten out of its banks or what it affects if it does but it’s plenty high.

Had a decent squall yesterday. There was certainly some weak rotation aloft... especially when it was to my southwest.... but no damaging wind or tornado reports came of it. Just some gusty wind and very heavy rain.

The rainfall being put out by some of the models (especially the  EURO) for the next 10-14 days across the Ohio River watershed is insanely high. Would imagine this would cause widespread and major flooding issues.

12Z Euro QPF over the next ten days (with almost all falling by next weekend). Heavier rains have shifted north some. Continued major flooding threat for many areas if this pans out.

Thankfully the Hocking has gone down to near-normal levels after lingering in the teens for a bit longer than usual. But if this continues to trend more north so that we get the heavy training rain, that'll make things interesting for the 3rd time this month.

...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY
MORNING...

The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of northeast Kentucky, southeast
  Ohio, southwest Virginia, and West Virginia, including the
  following areas, in northeast Kentucky, Boyd, Carter, Greenup,
  and Lawrence KY. In southeast Ohio, Athens, Gallia, Jackson
  OH, Lawrence OH, Meigs, Morgan, Perry, Vinton, and Washington.
  In southwest Virginia, Buchanan and Dickenson. In West
  Virginia, Barbour, Boone, Braxton, Cabell, Calhoun, Clay,
  Doddridge, Gilmer, Harrison, Jackson WV, Kanawha, Lewis,
  Lincoln, Logan, Mason, McDowell, Mingo, Pleasants, Putnam,
  Ritchie, Roane, Taylor, Tyler, Upshur, Wayne, Wirt, and Wood.

* From Tuesday evening through Thursday morning

* Heavy rain will overspread the area starting late Tuesday night
  and lasting through early Thursday morning. Rainfall amounts as
  high as 2 to 3 inches will be possible. The rain combined with a
  saturated ground will likely lead to flooding of creeks, streams
  and rivers which are already running high.

* Flooded roads along streams, creeks and rivers are possible.
  Especially, low lying and poor drainage areas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Have also issued a flood watch for much of the region and that
may need to be extended at a later time as well. But significant
rainfall over already saturated soils means that flooding is
likely going to occur somewhere.

&&

.LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
As of 310 PM Monday...

After brief high pressure builds in on Thursday, another strong
system pushes in this weekend. At least this system will be all
rain, however, anymore rain is going to cause flooding issues.
Will have to keep an eye on this and see how the pattern unfolds
the next few days, as streams and rivers will be running very
high after this mid-week storm and anything additional could
make matters worse.

this kills me, not only does the OV get the winter shaft, we get on going flooding....not spilling in to multiyear. I am absolutely dreading spring now...won't be able to step foot outside the new house and enjoy the property for the first time without getting obliterated by mosquitos

I doubt this pattern continues through the spring. If it does, then we'd be shaping up for an epic tornado season like 2008 or 2011.
