332 PM CDT Thu Jun 21 2018

... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 845 PM CDT for eastern
will... dupage and Cook counties...

At 331 PM CDT, Doppler radar and rainfall observations indicated
that one to locally upwards of three inches of rain had fallen
through early this afternoon over portions of Cook, dupage, and will
counties. While a lull in the widespread heavy rain is expected
through early evening, heavy rain could redevelop later this evening
or overnight.

Areas of flooding are expected to persist into this evening due to
runoff from the heavy rain that already fell today. Low-lying areas,
ditches, poor drainage locations, and viaducts or underpasses will
be most vulnerable to flooding, including in the Chicago area during
the late day commute.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Chicago, Cicero, Arlington Heights, Evanston, Schaumburg,
Bolingbrook, Palatine, Skokie, Des Plaines, Orland Park, Tinley
Park, Oak Lawn, Berwyn, Mount Prospect, Wheaton, Hoffman Estates and
Oak Park.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water in
urban areas... highways... streets and underpasses as well as other
poor drainage areas and low lying spots. Do not attempt to travel
across flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few
inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

locations have received significant rainfall in the past week,
including additional rain this morning. Rainfall amounts of one
to three inches are expected tonight through Friday morning.

rainfall will more quickly go into runoff. Urban and small

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:46 PM CDT Jun. 21, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement now in effect through late Friday
night...

* location... Lake Michigan beaches in Illinois and Lake County
Indiana.

* High wave action and dangerous swimming conditions expected.

* Forecast wave heights... 3 to 7 feet tonight through Friday.

* Strong rip currents and structural currents expected.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Life threatening waves and currents are expected at the beaches.
People visiting the beaches should stay out of the water.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you into deeper water along the pier structure.

Exposed beaches are more likely to experience the most
significant wave and current impacts. Impacts at beaches with
protective breakwalls or jetties will be subject to the
orientation of structures as well as wind and wave direction.
