Washington County in south central Illinois...
Madison County in southwestern Illinois...

* until 900 PM CDT Sunday.

* At 900 am CDT, Doppler radar showed a solid area of light to
moderate rain across the area which will continue through the
remainder of the morning. This rainfall in addition to continuous
runoff from the 3 to 5 inches of rainfall that has fallen since
late Friday will result in minor flooding on some area creeks,
streams, poor drainage areas, and roads which are often subject to
minor flooding.

* Some locations that may experience flooding include...
St. Louis, St. Charles, St. Peters, Florissant, Chesterfield,
Belleville, Wildwood, University City, Ballwin, Granite City,
Wentzville, O'Fallon, Alton, Kirkwood, Maryland Heights, east St.
Louis, Hazelwood, Collinsville, Edwardsville and Webster Groves.

This also includes babler Memorial State Park, Scott Joplin
historic site, Route 66 State Park, Castlewood State Park,
confluence State Park, mastodon historic site, Sandy Creek Covered
Bridge historic site, gov. Dunklin's grave historic site, first
Missouri state Capitol historic site, Robertsville State Park,
Meramec State Park, Carlyle Lake recreational area, and Horseshoe
Lake State Park.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, country roads, farmland, and other low lying
spots.

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate Route.
