This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central

driving conditions over parts of central and west central Illinois
early this morning. Any ice accumulations will be less than a
tenth of an inch. However, surface temperatures are expected to

Due to the recent heavy rainfall across the region and the snow
melt along the river basins to our north, significant river
flooding is expected to occur over the next week. Moderate to
major flooding is forecast along the Illinois River through at
least early next week. Minor flooding that has been occurring on
the Spoon River at London Mills is forecast to end this morning.
