moderate rain this evening, combined with previous heavy rainfall,

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 9:00 PM CDT Apr. 29, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch now in effect through Monday evening...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of central Illinois, including the following area,
Sangamon County.

* Through Monday evening.

* Periods of heavy rainfall are expected through Sunday night. By
Monday morning, a large area of 2 to 3 inches of additional rain
is expected. The heavy rain threat will end as a cold front
moves through. In addition, water is being released from
Spaulding dam at Lake Springfield. Because of this, there is
substantial flow of water in Sugar Creek downstream of the dam.

* In addition to potential flooding of streets and roads in
flood prone areas, area rivers and streams are also likely to
experience flooding. This would persist for several days after
the rain ends.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation,
especially if driving. Never drive across a flooded roadway. You
should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
