...Areas of Freezing Fog Across Central...East Central and
Southeast Illinois This Morning...

The combination of a clear sky, light winds and residual moisture
left over from Saturday`s rain and snow will continue to produce
areas of freezing fog early this morning. Visibilities in a few
locations have dropped briefly below one quarter of a mile and
we expect these conditions to continue through the early morning
hours. In addition, surface temperatures will remain well below
freezing resulting in a light deposit of ice on area roadways,
especially on bridge decks, on and off ramps and secondary roads.
The fog should begin to dissipate after 8:00 A.M. as temperatures
start to warm and winds gradually increase.

Motorists should be prepared for sudden drops in visibility early
this morning along with rapidly changing road conditions, especially
on the lesser traveled roadways. Leave plenty of room between your
car and the car in front of you, reduce speed, and use low beam
headlights.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED:

  Limited Fog Risk.

DISCUSSION:

Patchy fog is possible tonight, mainly outside of Chicago.

Localized ice jam flooding will remain a threat on area rivers.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

Sunday...
  Limited Thunderstorm Risk at night mainly south of I-80.

...Elevated Risk of Flooding this Week...

The combination of recent rainfall, saturated ground and upcoming
rounds of rain will likely lead to flooding on area streams and
rivers over this week. Areal flooding is also possible,
particularly over low lying and other flood prone areas.

Rainfall amounts between 1 and 4 inches could fall between Monday
and Wednesday night. Additional rainfall is likely before the end
of the week. There is still some uncertainty as to where the
heaviest rainfall will occur.

If you live along streams and rivers or in any flood prone area,
remain alert to this flooding potential over the next week.

latest forecast information.

...EXTENDED PERIOD OF RAINFALL MAY RESULT IN A RISK FOR FLOODING...

An unseasonably warm and moist air mass will overspread the region
early in the new week, with several rounds of showers and
thunderstorms expected. Rainfall totals of 1.5 to 3 inches are
likely over central and southeast Illinois through Wednesday,
with the higher totals east of I-55. There is also potential for
significant rainfall late in the week as well.

This amount of rain will result in rises on area rivers and
streams, which may cause flooding to develop. People with
interests along area rivers should monitor later forecasts for
updates on this situation.
