Rainiest period since June begins
Once dry Chicago is headed for another round of rain . A new autumn storm is behind the renewed rain threat which is likely to see patchy morning sprinkles or light rain segue into steadier, more widespread rainfall later Tuesday into Tuesday night and Wednesday.
Rainfalls are likely to vary across the metro area. But it appears a good bet some areas may end up with an inch or more of rainfall. It’s rainfall likely to nudge the 1.68” on the books to date ever higher.
