...Periods of Heavy Rainfall Tonight through the Weekend with
Possible Flooding...

Multiple rounds of thunderstorms with heavy rainfall are expected
over the region through the weekend, primarily tonight through
Saturday. Despite dry weather and drought conditions across
portions of northern Illinois, river flooding and flash flooding
will be possible. Uncertainty is still high regarding the placement
of the highest rainfall totals and the extent of the flood threat.

Some locations are likely to experience over three inches of rain,
and may see more than five inches through Sunday. Drought
conditions will reduce the threat of flooding, however rainfall
rates in heavy thunderstorms can lead to flash flooding in dry soil
conditions, as well as in heavily urbanized or poor drainage
locations. If multiple waves of heavy rainfall were to occur in the
same locations, dry soil moisture conditions could be overcome and
river flooding may materialize. Confidence in the exact location of
the heaviest rainfall remains low at this time, and rainfall
amounts by next week may vary significantly across short distances.

This outlook means that there is the potential for elevated river
levels and flooding impacts, but the timing, extent, and severity
remain uncertain. Persons with interests along area rivers should
closely monitor the latest forecasts.
