following counties: Stark, Knox, Marshall, Peoria, Woodford, McLean,
Tazewell, Fulton, Vermilion, Mason, Champaign, Logan, Piatt, DeWitt,

The ground remains wet from the thunderstorms

today and tonight will likely result in flooding along rivers and streams.
In addition, heavy rainfall with some stronger storms will increase the
threat for flash flooding of low-lying and urban areas.

favorable for heavy rain that may lead to flooding of low-lying areas and
along rivers and 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.
