Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 2:46 PM CDT on July 07, 2015

... Flash Flood Watch in effect from Wednesday morning through
Thursday morning...

The National Weather Service in Lincoln has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of central Illinois... east
central Illinois... north central Illinois... south central
Illinois... southeast Illinois and west central Illinois...
including the following areas... in central Illinois...
Christian... De Witt... Logan... Macon... Marshall... Mason...
McLean... Menard... Moultrie... Peoria... Piatt... Sangamon...
Shelby... Tazewell and Woodford. In east central Illinois...
Champaign... Clark... Coles... Crawford... Cumberland... Douglas...
Edgar and Vermilion. In north central Illinois... Stark. In
south central Illinois... Clay and Effingham. In southeast
Illinois... Jasper... Lawrence and Richland. In west central
Illinois... Cass... Fulton... Knox... Morgan... Schuyler and Scott.

* From Wednesday morning through Thursday morning

* a weather system will bring showers and thunderstorms to the
area tomorrow through tomorrow night. The showers and storms
are expected to produce heavy rainfall as they move over the
area. An area of 1.5 to 2 inches of rainfall can be expected
south of I-72 through the period. However... around an inch is
possible north of this area. The ground still remains somewhat
saturated so any heavy rainfall could lead to flash flooding of
low lying areas and poor drainage areas.

* Heavy rainfall will result in flooding of poor drainage and low
lying areas... resulting in the potential of dangerous flooding
on smaller creeks and streams. This could also cause rises on
larger rivers and stream that have been receding in the past
couple of days... and cause other rivers to remain in a state of
flood for a longer period of time.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
