MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN EVENT FORECAST TO BEGIN ABOUT 8AM MONDAY AND LAST UNTIL 11PM TUESDAY WITH ABOUT 2 INCHES OF RAINFALL EXPECTED IN ARLINGTON HEIGHTS AND NORTHWEST SUBURBS

Showers and thunderstorms were located along a line from Quad Cities to Peoria to Danville, and moving southwest to northeast at 4:50 a.m.


Low temperatures overnight Sunday/Monday held at about 38°F to 40°F, and are forecast to begin rising about 6:00 a.m. The temperature is forecast to rise to 46°F by noon Monday and to 53°F (high) from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The low temperature during the heavy rain period is expected be 52°F around 9:00 p.m. Monday. Tuesday may reach 61°F around noon.

Wind gusts of 14 to 26 MPH from the southwest are forecast to begin about noon and continue until 5:00 a.m. Monday. A second period of southwest wind gusts of 17-24 MPH are forecast for Tuesday from 7:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

…FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM THIS EVENING THROUGH LATE
TUESDAY NIGHT…

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of Illinois and Indiana, including the following
areas, in Illinois, Boone, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Ford, Grundy,
Iroquois, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, La Salle, Lake IL, Lee,
Livingston, McHenry, Ogle, Will, and Winnebago. In Indiana,
Benton, Jasper, Lake IN, Newton, and Porter.

* From this evening through late Tuesday night.

* Unseasonably warm and moist air will overspread the region
beginning today, with several rounds of showers and
thunderstorms expected between today and Wednesday. Expect area
wide rainfall totals of over an inch with many areas
potentially receiving 2 to 4 inches.

* Ground remains frozen, therefore much of the rain will result in
rapid runoff. In addition, many areas north of I-80 still have
snow on the ground and melting of this snow will compound
runoff from heavy rainfall. Ice jam break up is also a concern.
Expect rises on area rivers and streams that may result in
flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
