HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CHICAGO IL
421 AM CST SUN DEC 27 2015

...STREAM AND RIVER RISES ANTICIPATED EARLY THIS WEEK WITH
LOCALIZED FLOODING ALSO POSSIBLE...

ANOTHER WET PERIOD IS IN STORE FOR NORTHERN ILLINOIS AND
NORTHWEST INDIANA ON MONDAY. MODERATE TO HEAVY PRECIPITATION WILL
PRODUCE ANOTHER THREE QUARTERS TO ONE AND A HALF INCHES OF
RAINFALL ON MONDAY AND MONDAY EVENING. THE WET PATTERN OVER THE
PAST TWO MONTHS...INCLUDING RECENT RAINFALL IN LATE DECEMBER...HAS
MANY AREA STREAMFLOWS WELL ABOVE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.
THEREFORE THE PRECIPITATION ON MONDAY WILL LIKELY RESULT IN
SIGNIFICANT RISES AND POSSIBLE FLOODING ALONG AREA RIVERS AND
STREAMS GOING FORWARD THIS WEEK. IN ADDITION...THE HEAVY RAIN WILL
LIKELY RESULT IN SOME PONDING OF WATER IN LOW LYING AND POOR
DRAINAGE AREAS.
