The National Weather Service in Lincoln has issued a

central Illinois... north central Illinois... south central
Illinois... southeast Illinois and west central Illinois...
including the following areas... in central Illinois...

Illinois... Jasper... Lawrence and Richland. In west central
Illinois... Cass... Fulton... Knox... Morgan... Schuyler and Scott.

* From Wednesday morning through Thursday morning

* a weather system will bring showers and thunderstorms to the
area tomorrow through tomrorow night. The showers and storms are
expected to produce heavy rainfall as they move over the area.
An area of 1.5 to 2 inches of rainfall can be expected south of
I-72 through the period. However... around an inch is possible
north of this area. The ground still remains somewhat saturated
so any heavy rainll fall could lead to flash flooding of low
lying areas and poor drainage areas.

* Heavy rainfall will result in flooding of poor drainage and low
lying areas... resulting in the potential of dangerous flooding
on smaller creeks and streams. This could also cause rises on
larger rivers and streams that are have been receding in the
past couple of days... and cause other rivers to remain in the
state of flood for a longer period of time.

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.
