(Lincoln, IL) — The focus for the heavy rain the next few days is continuing to shift southward with each update. The focus band of heavier rains looks to now be located along and south of the I-72 corridor. Potential exists for four to seven inches in a large area, with locally higher amounts. This rainfall will not all be at once, but even over the course of a few days, the potential for flooding will increase with these amounts. A couple periods of heavier rains are likely, especially this weekend as the remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon arrive.
