The Flash Flood Watch continues for

following areas, in Illinois, Bureau, Carroll, Henry IL, Jo
Daviess, Putnam, Rock Island, Stephenson, and Whiteside. In
east central Iowa, Clinton, Jackson, Jones, and Scott.

* Through Friday morning

* slow moving showers and thunderstorms and multiple rounds of
storms may produce heavy rain over already saturated ground.
Peak rainfall rates may reach 1 to 2 inches per hour. Total
rain amounts will vary considerably, but an additional 2 to 4
inches are possible in the heaviest bands, with isolated
higher amounts not out of the question.

* Those near smaller rivers, streams, and low-lying areas should
be prepared for dangerous flash flooding and more prolonged
high water levels. Urban flooding is also a threat. Remember
never to drive through flooded roadways. There were many
reports of stalled vehicles in the Quad Cities on Wednesday
from people attempting to cross through flood waters.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that flash flooding is possible.
Monitor forecasts and take action if flash flood warnings are
issued or flash flooding develops.
