Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 6:52 AM CST on February 24, 2018

Expires 1:00 AM EST on February 25, 2018


... Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of central Illinois, east central Illinois, and
southeast Illinois, including the following areas, in central
Illinois, Shelby. In east central Illinois, Clark, Coles,
Cumberland, and Edgar. In southeast Illinois, Clay, Crawford,
Effingham, Jasper, Lawrence, and Richland.

* Through this evening

* rain will continue through this evening. The rain may be heavy
at times this morning, and again this evening. Up to 2 inches of
additional rainfall are expected through this evening, though
some locally higher totals are possible in thunderstorms.

* This area has already received locally heavy rainfall earlier
this week, and the ground is saturated. Much of the rain will
be unable to be absorbed into the soil, resulting in flooding of
low lying areas, and near ditches and streams. Flooding along
area rivers will be enhanced with this additional runoff.

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.
