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.
