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, DeKalb, DuPage, 
  Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, 
  La Salle, Lee, Livingston, and Will. 
  In northwest Indiana, Lake IN.
  (DARK GREEN-SHADED AREA ON THE HIGHLIGHTED MAP)

* 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.
