Active Weather Alerts

Flood Watch
Issued: 8:21 PM Feb. 27, 2021 – National Weather Service
...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 6 PM CST THIS EVENING THROUGH
SUNDAY MORNING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of southern Illinois...southwest Indiana and southeast
Missouri, including the following areas, in southern Illinois,
Alexander, Franklin, Hamilton, Jackson, Johnson, Pulaski, Saline,
Union, White and Williamson. In southwest Indiana, Gibson and
Pike. In southeast Missouri, Bollinger, Butler, Cape Girardeau,
Carter, Perry MO, Ripley, Scott, Stoddard and Wayne MO.

* From 6 PM CST this evening through Sunday morning

* A consistent signal for locally heavy rain is forecast, especially
tonight. Storm total average rainfall is forecast to range from
one and a quarter to two and a quarter inches in the Watch area
and, with thunderstorms forecast, localized higher totals up to 3
inches or more are possible. This amount of cumulative rainfall
will be falling on recently soaked grounds from melted snowfall,
so the ability to soak in all this expected rainfall will be
compromised and likely to cause flood issues.

* Low lands, streets, and small creeks and streams will respond
fastest with standing water and flooding. Heavier, more sustained,
or repeat rainfall will promote broader, more extensive flooding.

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. If you live in an area prone to flooding, be
prepared to take action should flooding develop. Do not enter or
cross flowing water or water of unknown depth, and remember, flood
waters are harder to see at night. Never cross a barricaded road.
