Melting snow and heavy rains have prompted the National Weather Service to issue flood warnings for parts of northern IL and flood watches for central IL.

Rain is expected to keep things soggy through Wednesday, said Alex Manion, a meteorologist with the weather service in White Lake Township.

Those with the National Weather Service monitored the radars closely Tuesday morning, ahead of what should be an active and steady system of rain in the coming days.

River floods can occur during prolonged rain events, though the rainfall that leads to flash flooding certainly does not help the situation.

"Locally, some could see higher amounts - enough to cause flooding, particularly in low-lying areas", Bishop said.

Flood warnings were already issued Tuesday for the Ouachita, Little Missouri, Saline, Fourche La Fave and Cache rivers.

And the 28 year-old has started life on Merseyside superbly after scoring two and providing one assist in his three appearances. Allardyce then took Walcott off to a rousing ovation from the home fans, with the score 4-0.

Flood watches remain in effect until Wednesday afternoon for Lucas County and counties to its north and west.

The storm total for Macomb and Oakland counties are expected to be around 2 inches.

The potholes on numerous roads may also be filled with water, which also requires motorists to slow down in some areas.

Today's high, if it reaches 69 degrees as predicted, would set a new record for the date. Rivers and streams likely will continue to rise, which might result in additional flooding.

By Saturday, up to 6 inches of rain is forecast in several rounds of precipitation across much of the state.
