central Illinois, and northeast Illinois, including the
following areas, in central Illinois, Livingston. In north

* The potential exists for a localized area of heavier showers and
thunderstorms to develop through the rest of the evening and
into the overnight hours near and just south of the I-80
corridor. Some of these areas received over half a foot of rain
last Friday, and soils can't accept much additional rainfall in

develop over these saturated soils, a Flash Flood Watch has been
issued from Midnight to 5 AM tonight.

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.
