...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM 10 PM CDT THIS EVENING
THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING...

The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of Illinois and northwest
Indiana, including the following areas, in Illinois, Cook, De
Kalb, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, La Salle, Lee,
Livingston, and Will. In northwest Indiana, Lake IN.

* From 10 PM CDT this evening through Sunday morning

* Another round of showers and thunderstorms are likely to move
across northern IL late tonight into early Sunday morning. These
storms will be capable of producing localized heavy rainfall
rates in excess of one inch per hour. Areas along and near the
I-80 corridor are the most susceptible to flash flooding given
this area was hit hard with 2 to 7 inches of rainfall on
Friday. For this reason, it will not take much additional
rainfall to result in a renewed flash flooding threat.

* Rivers and streams may exhibit renewed rapid rises and quickly
go out of their banks.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued
