The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of central Illinois, east central Illinois, southeast

  areas, in central Illinois, Christian, De Witt, Logan, Macon,
  Menard, Piatt, Sangamon, and Shelby. In east central Illinois,

  and Vermilion. In southeast Illinois, Clay, Crawford,
  Effingham, Jasper, Lawrence, and Richland. In west central
  Illinois, Cass, Morgan, and Scott.

* From 6 PM CST this evening through Saturday morning

* Heavy rainfall from last weekend has resulted in saturated soil
  conditions and river and lake levels being higher than normal.
  By Saturday morning some areas will receive between 1 and 1.5
  inches. The precipitation will start out as a wintry mix during
  this afternoon and into part of this evening. As warmer air
  moves in from the south, the precipitation will change over to
  rain during the evening. Most of the moderate to heavy rain is
  expected tonight after temperatures are above freezing. This
  rainfall will quickly become runoff.

* Moderate to heavy rainfall will result in flooding of low
  lying or poor drainage areas, including flooding on smaller creeks
  and streams. Significant rises on larger streams and rivers will
  also be possible.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. Monitor later forecasts and be alert for
possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding
should be prepared to take action should flooding develop. Never
drive across a flooded roadway.
