Plenty of water is in our future

Posted by wlpo on February 16, 2014

The Illinois Valley will be dealing with lots of water this week.

The National Weather Service has put our three counties under a Winter Weather Advisory starting Monday morning. Snow – perhaps up to seven inches – could fall Monday across LaSalle County and two to five in Bureau and Putnam. Winds will pick up from the South during this time.

After this storm event, indications are for warm enough temperatures to create melting and some flood issues in low lying areas. Many rivers have frozen surfaces that could break up into pieces causing ice jams and possible flooding.
