...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH THURSDAY AFTERNOON...

The National Weather Service in Lincoln has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of central Illinois, east
central Illinois, southeast Illinois, and west central
Illinois, including the following areas, in central Illinois,
Christian, De Witt, Logan, Macon, Menard, Piatt, Sangamon, and

southeast Illinois, Clay, Crawford, Effingham, Jasper,

* Through Thursday afternoon

* Widespread rainfall will shift into the region today, bringing
the chance for upwards of 2 inches of rain to the region. This
will create the potential for flash flooding on already
saturated soils.

* Low lying and poor drainage areas are expected to continue
flooding as additional rain falls over the next day and a half.
Areas near rivers and streams will also be affected due to the
already elevated levels.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
