Flood watch for Ford and Iroquois counties

The National Weather Service says that Ford and Iroquois counties are under a flood watch from late Monday evening through late Tuesday night.

Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected between Monday and Wednesday. Expect area wide rainfall totals of more than an inch, with many areas potentially receiving 2 to 4 inches.

The ground remains frozen, therefore much of the rain will result in a rapid runoff.
