[January 10, 2014]  The National Weather Service in Lincoln released an outlook at 5:43 a.m. Friday for portions of central, east-central and southeast Illinois. This weather outlook is for the counties of Cass, Champaign, Christian, Clark, Clay, Coles, Crawford, Cumberland, DeWitt, Douglas, Edgar, Effingham, Jasper, Lawrence, Logan, Macon, Mason, Menard, Morgan, Moultrie, Piatt, Richland, Sangamon, Schuyler, Scott, Shelby and Vermilion.

Friday and Friday night

A vigorous storm system will move through the region Friday, bringing much warmer conditions and locally heavy rain. Rainfall totals of one-half to 1 inch will be common by the time the precipitation ends late Friday night. Due to the expected rainfall and rapid snow melt, many area creeks and streams will rise considerably over the weekend. Some points along the Little Wabash and Embarras rivers may approach or exceed flood stage early next week.

Saturday through Thursday

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.
