Rain Expected To Stick Around

(Lincoln, IL) -- The rain is expected to stick around for the next several days. The National Weather Service reports scattered thunderstorms could hit much of central Illinois between now and next Tuesday. Officials say it's too soon to say if there will be any severe weather risks but with plenty of rain in the forecast, people should keep an eye out for standing water. Never try to walk or drive through standing water because doing so increases the odds of drowning.
