HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK

316 PM CST TUE MAR 8 2016 /416 PM EST TUE MAR 8 2016/

...MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF MODERATE RAIN THROUGH MIDWEEK...

THE WEATHER PATTERN ACROSS THE REGION TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY IS
ONE THAT WILL FAVOR A COUPLE WAVES OF MODERATE TO POSSIBLY HEAVY
RAINFALL. CONFIDENCE IS FAIRLY HIGH IN MUCH OF THE AREA SEEING AT
LEAST AN INCH TO ONE AND A HALF INCHES OF RAIN DURING THAT TIME.

THE BEST CHANCE FOR THE HIGHER AMOUNTS WILL BE ALONG AND SOUTH OF
A LINE FROM PERU TO CHICAGO. THIS WOULD INCLUDE THE
ILLINOIS...KANKAKEE...AND IROQUOIS RIVER BASINS. SOIL MOISTURE
REMAINS HIGH FOR THIS EARLY IN THE SPRING SEASON...AND SOME AREA
STREAMS ARE ALSO RUNNING HIGHER THAN NORMAL. RUNOFF FROM THIS
HEAVY RAINFALL MAY RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT RISES AND POSSIBLE
FLOODING ON AREA STREAMS AND RIVERS. THERE IS ALSO THE POTENTIAL
FOR AREAL FLOODING NAMELY IN AND AROUND DITCHES AND LOW-LYING
FIELDS.

THOSE WITH INTERESTS ALONG RIVERS SHOULD REMAIN UP TO DATE ON THE
LATEST WEATHER FORECASTS OVER THE COMING DAYS.
