    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. If you live in an area prone to flooding, be prepared to take action should flooding develop. Do not enter or cross flowing water or water of unknown depth, and remember, flood waters are harder to see at night. Never cross a barricaded road.
    Portions of southern Illinois...southwest Indiana and southeast Missouri, including the following areas, in southern Illinois, Alexander, Franklin, Hamilton, Jackson, Johnson, Pulaski, Saline, Union, White and Williamson. In southwest Indiana, Gibson and Pike. In southeast Missouri, Bollinger, Butler, Cape Girardeau, Carter, Perry MO, Ripley, Scott, Stoddard and Wayne MO.
    Until Noon CST today
    A consistent signal for locally heavy rain is forecast, especially tonight. Storm total average rainfall is forecast to range from one to two inches in the Watch area and, with thunderstorms forecast, localized higher totals are possible. This amount of cumulative rainfall will be falling on recently soaked grounds from melted snowfall, so the ability to soak in all this expected rainfall will be compromised and likely to cause flood issues.
