Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 2:35 PM CST on February 23, 2018

Expires 1:00 AM EST on February 25, 2018


... Flood Watch in effect from 6 PM CST this evening through
Saturday evening...

The National Weather Service in Lincoln has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of east central Illinois and southeast
Illinois, including the following areas. In east central
Illinois, Clark and Cumberland counties. In southeast Illinois,
Clay, Crawford, Effingham, Jasper, Lawrence, and Richland
counties.

* From 6 PM CST this evening through Saturday evening.

* Rain will move into the area this evening, with occasional rain
through Saturday evening. The rain may be heavy at times,
especially on Saturday. Around 2 inches of rain are expected
through Saturday evening, though some locally higher totals are
possible in thunderstorms.

* This area has received up to 2 inches of rain so far 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.
