HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CHICAGO IL
408 AM CST MON MAR 7 2016 /508 AM EST MON MAR 7 2016/

...PERIODS OF MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL POSSIBLE MIDWEEK...

THE WEATHER PATTERN EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE REGION TUESDAY
NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY IS ONE THAT WILL FAVOR SUPPORTING SEVERAL
WAVES OF MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL ACROSS THE AREA. ALTHOUGH
UNCERTAINTY STILL EXISTS WITH WHICH AREAS WILL SEE THE HEAVIEST
RAINFALL...THERE ARE INCREASING CONCERNS THAT PORTIONS OF THE AREA
COULD SEE RAINFALL AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF 2 INCHES BY THURSDAY
MORNING. AREA RIVERS AND STREAMS REMAIN ELEVATED FROM LEVELS
NORMALLY EXPERIENCED THIS EARLY IN THE SPRING SEASON. RUNOFF FROM
THIS HEAVY RAINFALL WOULD THEN LIKELY RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT
RISES...AND POSSIBLE FLOODING...ON AREA STREAMS AND RIVERS. ANYONE
WITH INTERESTS ALONG RIVERS SHOULD KEEP UP TO DATE ON THE LATEST
WEATHER FORECASTS OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
