Heavy rainfall could cause flooding

Flood warnings issued for La Salle County

Rainfall reports beginning to arrive. And that means spring-like flooding is possible.

Temperatures will be warm Monday and Tuesday with highs of 44 and 54 respectively.

While rains are expected to be heavy at times, this weather isn't expected to bring heavy rain, lessening the risk of toppled trees, downed utility lines, and power outages.

Ponding water also caused several accidents early Tuesday on Interstate 57 near Matteson, where several cars hydroplaned in the standing water.

A wide swath of Arkansas faces a marginal risk for severe weather Tuesday ahead of expected heavy rain and potential flooding statewide through the weekend.

The National Weather Service says it is important to keep aware of your surroundings during the impending flood. Most of West Michigan can expect to see one to three inches of rain. This band of heavy rain will continue to drift to the southeast Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Mayor Jeannie Hefty, aware that many local residents endured historic flooding this past July, urged people to remain calm but vigilant to changing conditions.

As much as six inches of rainfall is expected this week, North Little Rock meteorologist Joe Goudsward said.

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, most of Texas was experiencing some level of drought up through last week.

More issues stemming from the floods were reported on Maui, where police said rising floodwaters forced some homes to be evacuated near the Waihee River, according to a separate Hawaii News Now report. "Snow showers are even possible above 10,000 feet on the Big Island".
