Flash Flood Watch, Heavy Rain Likely 11 PM to 7 AM, Arlington Heights, Chicago Weather Forecast Northwest

Increasing southerly low/mid level flow across portions of the mid Mississippi Valley is increasing the chance of thunderstorms in the area tonight. The heaviest rain in the Chicago area is expected somewhere over Cook, Kane, Lake, and McHenry counties. At least 0.57 inch of rain is likely by 7:00 a.m. However, conditions which could cause training thunderstorms (a continuous series of thunderstorms over the same region) are possible. Training thunderstorms could bring 2-4 inches of rain or more.

Thunderstorm Training
A series of thunderstorm cells that move over the same region in a relatively short period of time. Training thunderstorms are capable of producing excessive rainfall totals, which can cause flash flooding. “Training” is used to describe the analogy of a train and rail cars that travel along a track (a single path).

Weather Radar (also nexrad.chgowx.com) shows the possibility of training thunderstorms developing from Whiteside County to Ogle County to DeKalb County to Kane County to Cook County at 8:35 p.m.
