Flood watch extended until 4 p.m. today north of Interstate 72

The flood watch includes the following central Illinois counties: Stark, Knox, Marshall, Peoria, Woodford, McLean, Tazewell, Fulton, Vermilion, Mason, Champaign, Logan, Piatt, De Witt, Schuyler, Menard and Cass.

A few rounds of heavy rainfall have fallen over the watch area north of I-72 during the past week. Additional heavy rainfall is expected today across central Illinois as an upper level disturbance and frontal boundary move east across the state. Thunderstorms will produce locally heavy rain of 1 to 3 inches in an hour or two into midafternoon, causing possible flash flooding.

The ground remains wet, and some streams have elevated water levels. Additional heavy rainfall will likely result in flooding along streams. In addition, heavy rainfall with some stronger storms will increase the threat for flash flooding of low-lying and urban areas.

A flood watch means that conditions are favorable for heavy rain that may lead to flooding of low-lying areas and along streams. If you are in the watch area, remain informed and be ready to take action if flooding is observed or a warning is issued.

Stay tuned to NOAA weather radio or your local media for further updates and possible warnings.
