Flood warning for Ford and Iroquois counties extended

Flood watch issued

Additional rainfall amounts of 2 to 3 inches are possible in the warned area through early Wednesday.

While rains are expected to be heavy at times, this weather isn't expected to bring heavy rain, lessening the risk of toppled trees, downed utility lines, and power outages.

Periods of steady, heavy rain will continue throughout our Tuesday night as a cold front begins a sluggish approach from the west.

The National Weather Service in the Quad-Cities has instituted a flood watch for the Gateway area.

The National Weather service will issue its next spring hydrologic outlook, or flood prediction, March 1.

The rapid runoff due to frozen soils will cause localized pooling of water and flooding of low-lying flood-prone area.

A Flood watch is in effect for counties across mid-Michigan until Wednesday afternoon. Most of the rain will avoid Indy Metro until closer to Midnight, so most metro area and places south will be windy and warm for the evening.

Temperatures could reach into the mid-60s Tuesday and Wednesday.

As much as six inches of rainfall is expected this week, North Little Rock meteorologist Joe Goudsward said.

The heaviest rain Tuesday is expected to start at night in the northwest half of the state. Rises on area rivers, streams and creeks are expected, with the potential for minor flooding to occur. Our shot of getting more rain on Friday dips to 30%, but climbs back up to 90% for Saturday.

Most of the OH and Mississippi River Valleys will flooding rains this week.
