Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 4:46 AM EST on February 19, 2018

Expires 7:00 AM EST on February 21, 2018


... Flood Watch remains in effect from this evening through late
Tuesday night...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Illinois and Indiana, including the following
areas, in Illinois, Boone, Cook, DeKalb, dupage, Ford, Grundy,
Iroquois, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, La Salle, lake IL, Lee,
Livingston, McHenry, Ogle, will, and Winnebago. In Indiana,
Benton, Jasper, Lake in, Newton, and Porter.

* From this evening through late Tuesday night.

* Unseasonably warm and moist air will overspread the region
beginning today, with several rounds of showers and
thunderstorms expected between today and Wednesday. Expect area
wide rainfall totals of over an inch with many areas
potentially receiving 2 to 4 inches.

* Ground remains frozen, therefore much of the rain will result in
rapid runoff. In addition, many areas north of I-80 still have
snow on the ground and melting of this snow will compound
runoff from heavy rainfall. Ice jam break up is also a concern.
Expect rises on area rivers and streams that may result in
flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should 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.
