Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 4:31 AM CST on February 23, 2018

Expires 7:00 AM EST on February 25, 2018


... Flood Watch remains in effect through late Saturday night...

The Flood Watch continues for

* all of southern Illinois, southwest Indiana, western Kentucky,
and southeast Missouri.

* Through late Saturday night.

* Periods of showers and thunderstorms will produce another 2 to 4
inches of rainfall through Saturday night. Isolated higher
amounts will be possible. With saturated soil, the result will
be worsening areal flood problems and the potential for flash
flooding, especially Saturday afternoon and evening.

* The main flooding concern initially will be along small streams
and creeks that feed into already swollen rivers across the
region. Elsewhere, elevated water levels in low lying and poor
drainage areas may lead to standing water across some roads that
typically flood. However, a line of strong to severe
thunderstorms Saturday afternoon and evening may result in more
significant flash flooding over much of the region.


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.
