...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM THIS EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY
The National Weather Service in Lincoln has issued a
* Flash Flood Watch for portions of central Illinois and west
central Illinois, including the following counties. In central
Illinois, Christian, Logan, Marshall, Mason, Menard, Peoria,
Sangamon, Stark, Tazewell, and Woodford. In west central
Illinois, Cass, Fulton, Knox, Morgan, Schuyler, and Scott.
* From this evening through Thursday morning.
* As thunderstorms move across the area tonight, a very moist
atmosphere will result in heavy rain. While rainfall in general
is expected to range from 1.5 to 2 inches, some of the storms
will be capable of producing a couple inches in only an hour or
two. If the rain falls in such a short time frame, flash
flooding would be likely, especially in urban areas and normally
flood prone locations.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
