Heavy rain expected this week could cause flooding problems
Two significant storm systems will pass through Illinois this week. The first will arrive late Sunday night and Monday, and the second moves in Wednesday and Thursday.
Once that low passes, another one quickly moves in by the middle of the week bringing with it the potential for an additional inch of rain. The rain on Wednesday will be a cold rain with temperatures only expected to be in the 40's. And I can't completely rule out the possibility of some snowflakes mixing in with it. More on that in the next post.
With an already saturated ground and swollen creeks, streams and rivers the additional rainfall could cause localized flooding, especially where the heaviest rain occurs.
