HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CHICAGO IL
1029 AM CDT FRI MAY 8 2015

...POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAINFALL LATE THIS AFTERNOON INTO
TONIGHT...

AN UNSEASONABLY WARM AND MOIST AIRMASS WILL COMBINE WITH AN
APPROACHING ATMOSPHERIC DISTURBANCE TO RESULT IN PERIODS OF
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LATER THIS AFTERNOON INTO TONIGHT.
GIVEN THE VERY MOIST AIRMASS IN PLACE...THESE THUNDERSTORMS WILL
BE LIKELY TO PRODUCE TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS AND THE POTENTIAL FOR 1
TO 3 INCHES OF RAINFALL IN SOME AREAS. IF THIS HEAVY RAINFALL
OCCURS OVER THE URBAN AREAS OF THE CHICAGO METRO AREA...THIS COULD
RESULT IN SOME FLOODING CONCERNS.
