Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 2:00 AM CST Feb. 21, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch now in effect through late Saturday night...

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* all of southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, southwest Indiana
and western Kentucky.

* Through late Saturday night.

* Multiple rounds of rain, moderate to heavy at times will
increase the risk for areal flooding through the end of the
week, primarily from Thursday night through Saturday night.
Isolated low land and poor drainage areal flooding cannot be
ruled out before then.

* The main flooding concern will be along small streams and creeks
that feed into already swollen rivers across the region.
Especially in areas that receive multiple rounds of moderate to
heavy rainfall. Elsewhere, elevated water levels in low lying
and poor drainage areas may lead to standing water across some
roads that typically flood.

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.

Special Statement
Issued: 3:45 AM CST Feb. 21, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Some light freezing rain cannot be ruled out today...

Temperatures will bottom out today near the 32 degree mark in the
wake of a strong cold front that pushed through the region.
Light rains will continue off and on, possibly as light freezing
rain at times.

If some light glazing occurs, it should be mainly on elevated
surfaces. Confidence is lower with respect to how any light
freezing rain at 32 degrees will affect roads. It is possible a
slick spot or two could develop under the right conditions.

Stay tuned for updates.
