Increasing Flood Potential in the Region

Share this post

The National Weather Service in Chicago this morning said flooding is not a certainty at this time... but the potential does exist. Rainfall amounts of half to three-quarters of an inch are expected in the Region this afternoon through tonight. Forecasters say the current snow pack across northern illinois and northwest Indiana ranges in depth from 6 to 14 inches, with the water equivalent of the snow pack estimated between 1 and 2 inches. A combination of snow melt, rainfall, and frozen ground may result in rises on area streams with the potential for flooding along some rivers.
