Heavy Rainfall Possible for the Weekend

Possible rain totals through Sunday night
Copious amounts of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will be pulled northward ahead of a developing low pressure system this weekend.  The warm front associated with the low stays south of northern Illinois, keeping winds from the east and southeast and temperatures in the 50's.  South of the warm front temperatures warm into the 70's.

Rainfall totals nearing two inches between Friday night and Sunday night are possible, with the highest rain totals occurring over central and east-central Illinois.  Local rivers and streams are already running high from recent heavy rain.  Those who live in flood prone areas need to pay close attention to the weekend forecast.
