    The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued a

    * Flash Flood Watch for portions of Illinois and Indiana,
    including the following areas, in Illinois, Cook, Ford,
    Grundy, Iroquois, Kankakee, Livingston, and Will. In Indiana,
    Benton, Jasper, Lake IN, Newton, and Porter.

    * From Saturday afternoon through Monday morning.

    * Periods of heavy rainfall are expected through the weekend. By
    Monday morning, a large area of 3 to 6 inches of rain is
    expected along and east of Interstate 55 including much of
    northeast Illinois and northwest Indiana. Locally higher amounts
    are possible with thunderstorms. At the current time, the
    heaviest rain is expected Saturday afternoon through Saturday

    * While there is high confidence in widespread rainfall through
    the weekend, confidence is low in exactly where the heaviest
    axis of rain will fall.

    * In addition to potential flooding of streets and roads in
    flood prone areas, area rivers and streams are also likely to
    experience flooding. This would persist for several days after
    the rain ends.


    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.
