Flood Warning, But Arlington Heights Is on East Edge of Warning Area

FLOOD WARNING: STREAMWOOD AND HOFFMAN ESTATES MAY BE HARDEST HIT

Localized heavy rainfall is possible as thunderstorms from an “outer band” remnant of Subtropical Storm Alberto edge eastward toward Arlington Heights, which is on the edge of a Flood Warning activation. Wheeling, Northbrook, Highland Park, Mount Prospect, and Des Plaines are just outside the Flood Warning area. Streamwood and Hoffman Estates have already experienced heavy rainfall as of 5:15 p.m. and have already received some reports of flooded basements, flooded loading docks, and stranded motorists in flooded roadways and parking lots.

While areas as far east Arlington Heights might not see the localized flooding as severe as suburbs just to the west of Arlington Heights, streams in Arlington Heights are downstream from harder hit areas and might see a quick rise in rapid water.

Weather Radar (also nexrad.chgowx.com) shows an “outer band” remnant of heavy precipitation from Subtropical Storm Alberto that runs from north of Milwaukee to south of Danville. An area of heavy rain is likely to cover all of Arlington Heights by 5:25 p.m.

If the band of rain stalls over our area, we could see in excess of 2 inches of rain in Arlington Heights, but if the band passes through the area rainfall will likely be about 0.75 to 1.25 inch.
