   Illinois - Hydrologic Outlook

Counties: Edwards; Franklin; Perry; Pope; Pulaski; Saline; Union; Wabash; Wayne; White; Williamson

...Heavy rainfall possible Friday through Sunday...
Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected to move
across the area during this time period. The potential for heavy
rain is highest starting Friday night and continuing through
Sunday evening.
Rainfall amounts and locations are subject to change, but there
has been a fairly consistent signal to focus the heaviest amounts
over portions of southeast Missouri into southwest Illinois. This
area could see 3 to 5 inches with some locally higher amounts
possible. Amounts are expected to be lighter further east over
western Kentucky and southwest Indiana.
This heavy rain is expected to cause rises on some area rivers,
particularly the smaller rivers in southeast Missouri such as the
Saint Francis, Black, and Current. Minor to moderate river
flooding is possible.
Confidence is high that heavy rain will fall, but confidence is
lower as to the exact location of the heaviest rainfall. Stay
tuned for later updates or watches concerning this heavy rain
event.

   Illinois - Hydrologic Outlook

Counties: Jasper

...TWO ROUNDS OF HEAVY RAIN EXPECTED BETWEEN NOW AND THE
WEEKEND...
A cold front will approach Illinois Wednesday Night. Along and
ahead of this front we can expect strong to severe thunderstorms.
In addition to the severe weather, very heavy rainfall is
expected as the storms will track repeatedly over the same areas.
Widespread 1 to 2 inches of rain can be expected by sunrise
Thursday morning with the heaviest amounts along and near I-55.
Another very moist storm system will move into the region late
Friday and remain in the area through the weekend. Total rain from
Friday evening through Sunday Night across the area is expected to
generally range from 2 to 4 inches across central and southeast
Illinois with the highest amounts south of I-70.
The heavy rain falling on saturated soil from Wednesday`s storms
will produce rapid runoff and a potential for localized flooding,
as well as, river flooding across the region. Stay tuned to a
reliable source of weather information as the weekend approaches
and the potential for flooding becomes clearer.
