Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated 1 to 2 inches of
rain fell on top of a saturated ground during the early to mid
morning hours. Law enforcement officials reported flooded roadways
and viaducts at multiple locations across northern DuPage County

St. Charles, Glen Ellyn, West Chicago, Roselle, Villa Park, DuPage
Airport, Bartlett, Streamwood, Hanover Park, Wood Dale, Winfield,

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses
as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

additional heavy rain may produce localized flash flooding.

* Area rivers and streams are running high, which will means
rainfall will more quickly go into runoff. Localized flooding in
poor drainage areas, especially urban ones is likely.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 10:59 AM CDT Jun. 22, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through late
tonight...

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

* High wave action and dangerous swimming conditions expected.

* Forecast wave heights... 4 to 6 feet through late tonight.

* 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.
