CHICAGO — Storms moved across the Chicago area Sunday morning. A Flood Warning was extended past midnight Sunday for Cook, Lake and McHenry counties with a flood watch still in effect for the greater Chicagoland area.
There is potential for localized flooding throughout the area.
Heavy rains can cause rapid rises in water levels, especially for underpasses. The National Weather Service Chicago urges drivers to “turn around don’t drown” when approaching high-standing water on area roadways.
Steady, heavy rain will taper off this afternoon as temps tumble into the 60s.
Sunday Night: Cloudy with chance of showers/thunderstorms, low: mid-50s
Monday: Rainy periods, isolated thunderstorms & breezy. A few peeks of sun, high: mid-60s, cooler lakeside.
Extended outlook calls for a few lingering showers on Tuesday and then clearing skies. Pleasant and warmer with September sunshine and temps in the mid to low 80s for most of the rest of the week.
