...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH EARLY MONDAY
MORNING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of Illinois and Indiana, including the following
  areas, in Illinois, Cook, DuPage, Ford, Grundy, Iroquois,
  Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, La Salle, Livingston, and Will. In
  Indiana, Benton, Jasper, Lake IN, Newton, and Porter.

* Through early Monday morning.

* Periods of moderate to occasionally heavy rainfall are expected
  late this afternoon and evening. Additional rainfall amounts of
  0.50 to 1.50 inches are likely across the area, with potentially
  locally higher amounts. Given the saturated ground in many
  places from the rain that has already fallen, runoff from
  additional heavy rain may result in flash flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
