   Illinois - Hydrologic Outlook

Counties: Marshall; Tazewell; Woodford

...COPIOUS RAINFALL EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND ACROSS THE ILLINOIS
RIVER VALLEY...
Several periods of moderate to heavy rainfall are expected over
the Illinois River valley this weekend. Through Monday morning,
rainfall is expected to accumulate between 3.5 and 5 inches, with
the heaviest totals east of the Illinois river. At the present
time, it appears that Saturday afternoon and Saturday night are
the most likely periods for heavy rain to fall.
With this amount of rain falling, rapid runoff is expected. The
Illinois River is already in flood around Beardstown and Havana,
and flooding is likely to develop upstream early next week if this
amount of rain materializes. Flooding of smaller rivers will be
more rapid. In addition, localized flooding of area roads is
possible.
Flood watches have already been posted further southeast, and may
need to be expanded toward the Illinois River valley. Be sure to
monitor later forecasts for updates on the potential for flooding
this weekend.

Counties: Boone; Kane; Kankakee; Kendall

...Potential for Heavy Rain Late Saturday through Sunday
Evening...
A dynamic low pressure system will result in a northward surge of
Gulf moisture over the region on Saturday. High moisture levels,
and a prolonged period of rainfall will likely result in rises in
local rivers. Rainfall totals through Sunday night may exceed 4
inches across portions of the area.
While uncertainty remains with the placement of the heaviest
rainfall axis, the potential for high rainfall rates and amounts
will likely result in increased runoff into local rivers and
streams. This could push area streams and rivers into flood.
Residents living in flood prone areas should pay close attention
to the latest forecast information. Since the bulk of the
rainfall may be at night, motorists should be especially cautious
as flooding is harder to recognize at night.

   Illinois - Hydrologic Outlook

Counties: Lee; Livingston; McHenry

...Potential for Heavy Rain Late Saturday through Sunday
Evening...
A dynamic low pressure system will result in a northward surge of
Gulf moisture over the region on Saturday. High moisture levels,
and a prolonged period of rainfall will likely result in rises in
local rivers. Rainfall totals through Sunday night may exceed 4
inches across portions of the area.
While uncertainty remains with the placement of the heaviest
rainfall axis, the potential for high rainfall rates and amounts
will likely result in increased runoff into local rivers and
streams. This could push area streams and rivers into flood.
Residents living in flood prone areas should pay close attention
to the latest forecast information. Since the bulk of the
rainfall may be at night, motorists should be especially cautious
as flooding is harder to recognize at night.
