(11:55AM - 6/23/19) A series of disturbances pushing through the region, along with a meandering frontal boundary, will bring the threat for repeated rounds of heavy rain and flooding to the state through Monday.
Multiple rounds of rain and t'storms are likely across the state through Monday. An atmosphere featuring high moisture content, characterized by dew points in the 65-75F range and PWATS of 1.50-2.25", will also support the heavy rain threat. While a meandering front with disturbances riding through will allow for more widespread affects, an enhanced axis of heavier rain/flooding potential exists across portions of Central and Southern Illinois. Across Central and Southern Illinois, multiple clusters of rain and t'storms Friday morning into Saturday morning have already produced widespread rainfall totals of 1-5". With that said, widespread rainfall totals during the period will likely range upwards of 1-3" for a good portion of the state, with higher amounts of 3-7" likely in an axis across portions of Central and Southern Illinois. Given the wet pattern the past several months, recent heavy rainfall, and expected heavy rainfall...A moderate flood threat will exist across much of the state, with a high risk expected in the hardest hit corridor.
