    Thanks Chris. Well I’ve sure enjoyed the pAst few days of sunshine and warm temps. Looking at the week ahead at least it doesn’t look to be a total washout, even with the scary numbers of projected rainfall. Thh G at, I hope, is wrong! Looking forward to sunshine and more warmth in a few days. Have a great Sunday afternoon all and keep an eye and ear on the weather.

    Flash Flood Warnings are now in effect for virtually the entire Chicago Metro area until 10:30 PM local time, as a large area of heavy rain is moving in from the south and southwest.

    From midnight through 4 PM, almost an inch of rain has fallen at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, while 1.33 inches has fallen at the NWS forecast office in Romeoville in the SW suburbs. Those totals could easily be doubled, or even tripled, in the next several hours. Add those numbers to the 2 to 4 inches of rain received on Thursday… wow!

    At least the severe weather threat is very low, it’s just the heavy rain that’s concerning everyone here, as area rivers are going to undergo major flooding.
