...Flooding possible later this week...

Heavy rainfall is possible later this week as a strong upper
level system moves into the forecast area. Rainfall should
develop early Wednesday night and then persist through much of
Friday night. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 3 inches appear common,
except somewhat lower amounts near Lake Michigan. Although flash
flooding is not expected with this system, light to moderate rain
over saturated grounds for an extended period will cause rises on
rivers and bring the potential for more river flooding. Flooding
of low areas that have yet to drain from the past heavy rainfall
will likely undergo more widespread flooding. Rises on many area
rivers are likely through this weekend, even after the rain ends.
Updated river forecasts that incorporate all of this next round of
rainfall may not be available until Wednesday morning or possibly
