...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE TONIGHT...

6 AM CST WEDNESDAY...

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central
Illinois and east central Illinois.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT...

Showers will be likely along with a chance for thunderstorms
into early tonight. No severe weather is expected with any of the
thunderstorms. Additional rainfall of one half to one inch is
possible through the evening with locally higher amounts possible.
This is on top of the rain we have already received over the past
24 hours.

With the expected additional rainfall over west central and
central Illinois, the Illinois River from Henry south to Beardstown
is forecast to go to minor or moderate flooding later this week,
along with the Sangamon River at Monticello and the Vermilion
River at Danville where minor flooding is forecast at this time.

As a cold front moves through the area tonight, the rain is
expected to change over to a wintry mix of sleet and freezing
rain, then to light snow before ending Wednesday morning. Any ice
accumulations should be less than a tenth of an inch in most
areas. Traveling will be difficult as roads and elevated
areas may be slick.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY...

There may be some lingering light snow or sleet early in the
morning Wednesday. Another round of significant rainfall is
possible by late Thursday into Saturday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
