... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Illinois and Missouri... including the following
counties... in Illinois... Adams IL... Brown IL... Calhoun IL...

locally higher amounts are possible.

* Heavy rainfall will result in flooding of low lying or poor

smaller creeks and streams. Significant rises on larger
streams and rivers will also be possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that flash flooding is possible but not
imminent in the watch area. People in the watch area should be
aware of the possibility of heavy rainfall and flash flooding.
Check your preparedness requirements... especially if you live in
flood prone areas. Stay informed... and be ready for quick action
if flooding is observed or if a Flash Flood Warning is issued.
