   Illinois - Special Weather Statement

Counties: Alexander; Edwards; Franklin; Gallatin; Hamilton; Hardin; Jackson; Jefferson; Johnson; Massac; Perry; Pope; Pulaski; Saline; Union; Wabash; Wayne; White; Williamson

...Wet Start to Weekend Outlook...
Preliminary model data is still pointing to a soggy start to the
weekend. Estimated forecast storm total rainfall for Friday night
through Saturday averages from one inch across our north, to
potentially 2 inches across our south. These amounts will be
falling over grounds that have recently received good rains, so be
aware that rivers, creeks, and streams may rise more quickly, and
streets and low lands could inundate a little more quickly than
usual.
While these totals should not cause too widespread a problem,
there is some cold air coming in on the back side of this system
that could change it over to snow, before ending. And even if that
does not produce much, you will have wet roadways as temperatures
plunge Saturday night into Sunday. This could transition potential
hazards from flooding and hydroplaning Friday night and Saturday,
to slick patches of snow or ice, or black ice, Saturday night
through Sunday and Sunday night. In addition, strong winds could
produce bitter cold wind chills early Sunday morning and again
early Monday morning.
This Special Weather Statement is to advise you to just be aware
of all these potential weekend weather hazards, and be monitoring
your local NWS forecasts and updates to this evolving weather
situation, as we near the weekend.
