Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 2:19 PM CST on February 22, 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.

* Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms will produce
moderate to heavy at times through Saturday night. The result
will be worsening areal flood problems and isolated flash
flooding potential, especially Saturday afternoon and evening.

* The main flooding concern 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. Flash flooding will be possible with the final
round of heavy rain along the cold front late Saturday and
Saturday night.

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.
