Cloudy and mild for Thanksgiving Day
 
HERE IS THE LATEST WEATHER SYNOPSIS FOR THE MIDDLE OHIO VALLEY AND CENTRAL APPALACHIANS... Clouds will hang around today in the wake of the overnight cold front that passed through the area. Temperatures will remain above normal for this time of year, however. Dry and mild weather should continue into Friday, but a cold front is expected to move across the area Friday night into Saturday, which may result in light showers. However, moisture with this front will be limited, so the overall chance for rain is low.

Flash Flood Guidance

Flash Flood Guidance (FFG) provides a general indication of the amount of rainfall evenly distributed over various durations (in hours), necessary to cause small streams to overflow their natural banks. During heavy rainfall, accurate interpretation of the guidance consists of the combination of rainfall that has already occurred plus any additional rainfall that can be confidently expected to fall over the same location in the immediate future.

It should be noted that FFG values represent estimates of average soil moisture and stream flow conditions. Flooding may occur with less rainfall than indicated in areas of high rainfall intensities, impervious surfaces, or steep slopes.
