Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 4:45 PM EST Feb. 19, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through late Tuesday night...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Illinois and Indiana, including the following
areas, in Illinois, Cook, dupage, Ford, Grundy, Iroquois,
Kankakee, Kendall, La Salle, Livingston, and will. In Indiana,
Benton, Jasper, Lake in, Newton, and Porter.

* Through late Tuesday night.

* Multiple rounds of showers and some thunderstorms are expected
tonight, Tuesday, and into portions of Tuesday night. Widespread
rainfall amounts of one and a half to four inches are expected
with isolated higher totals possible.

* The ground remains frozen, therefore much of the rain will
result in rapid runoff. In addition, some snow remains over
areas north of I-80 and melting of this snow will compound
runoff from heavy rainfall. Ice jam break up is also a concern.
Expect rises on area rivers and streams that may result in
flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
