...TWO ROUNDS OF HEAVY RAIN EXPECTED BETWEEN NOW AND THE
WEEKEND...

A cold front will approach Illinois Wednesday Night. Along and
ahead of this front we can expect strong to severe thunderstorms.
In addition to the severe weather, very heavy rainfall is
expected as the storms will track repeatedly over the same areas.
Widespread 1 to 2 inches of rain can be expected by sunrise
Thursday morning with the heaviest amounts along and near I-55.

Another very moist storm system will move into the region late
Friday and remain in the area through the weekend. Total rain from
Friday evening through Sunday Night across the area is expected to
generally range from 2 to 4 inches across central and southeast
Illinois with the highest amounts south of I-70.

The heavy rain falling on saturated soil from Wednesday`s storms
will produce rapid runoff and a potential for localized flooding,
as well as, river flooding across the region. Stay tuned to a
reliable source of weather information as the weekend approaches
and the potential for flooding becomes clearer.
