Flood watch for Wednesday night

[JULY 9, 2003]  A flood watch for tonight (Wednesday) includes the following counties: Stark, Knox, Marshall, Peoria, Woodford, McLean, Tazewell, Fulton, Vermilion, Mason, Champaign, Logan, Piatt, DeWitt, Schuyler, Menard and Cass.

The ground remains wet from the thunderstorms overnight and Tuesday. Additional heavy rainfall that is expected later 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.

A flood watch means that conditions are 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.
