FLASH Flood Watch REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH MONDAY MORNING. The Flash Flood Watch continues for portions of central Illinois, east central Illinois, and southeast Illinois, including the following areas, in central Illinois, Christian, De Witt, Logan, Macon, McLean, Menard, Piatt, and Shelby. In east central Illinois, Champaign, Clark, Coles, Cumberland, Douglas, Edgar, Moultrie, and Vermilion. In southeast Illinois, Clay, Crawford, Effingham, Jasper, Lawrence, and Richland.
Through Monday morning
Periods of heavy rainfall are expected through Sunday night. By Monday morning, a large area of another inch or so of rain is expected. The threat of heavy rain will end with the passage of a cold front late Sunday.
In addition to potential flooding of streets and roads in flood prone areas, area rivers and streams are also likely to experience flooding. This would persist for several days after the rain ends.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION, especially if driving. Never drive across a flooded roadway. You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
