Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 9:17 PM CST on February 23, 2018

Expires 1:00 AM EST on February 25, 2018


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

The Flood Watch continues for

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

* Through Saturday evening

* rain will increase in intensity overnight with occasional rain
through Saturday evening. The rain may be heavy at times,
especially on Saturday afternoon. 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.
