The opening rounds of strong storms and heavy rains developed late Friday evening across southern IL and began their march across the state. Several warnings were issued, including severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings early as storms developed along the warm front. Later, they congealed into multiple waves, and will continue through the night bringing high chances of flash flooding across the region. Flood Watches are in effect all weekend with half a foot or more of rain possible in parts of the area.
