...Heavy rain Monday through late Tuesday may result in

An unseasonably warm and moist air mass will overspread the region
over the next few days with several rounds of showers and
thunderstorms expected between early Monday morning and late
Tuesday night. Through early Wednesday, expect area-wide
precipitation totals of over an inch with localized amounts of 2
to 4 inches possible. Heaviest rainfall is favored over far
northern Illinois on Monday and will shift into east-central
Illinois and northwest Indiana on Tuesday.

Grounds remain frozen and without vegetation over much of the
area which will result in rapid runoff. In addition, some areas
in northern Illinois may still have snow on the ground and
additional melting will compound runoff from heavy rainfall.
Expect rises on area rivers and streams that may result in

If you live along any area streams or rivers or are in a flood
prone area, please continue to monitor forecast updates through
the upcoming week.
