A flash flood watch for Sangamon and surrounding counties has been extended to Tuesday evening.
A full weekend of heavy rain, including some torrential downpours during the severe Memorial Day storms, has completely saturated the ground. And Tuesday's forecast calls for additional heavy rain and strong storms.
Officials say that could lead to standing water on roadways that could lead to cars getting stuck, and moving water underneath the surface could even wash vehicles off the road. Officials say you should never drive or wade through standing flood waters.
