Share post:

Chicago, IL – Significant rainfall drenched the Chicagoland area this past weekend, with some locations recording over four inches of precipitation, as reported by the National Weather Service. 

The intense weekend storms brought heavy rainfall in two major rounds from Saturday evening through Monday morning, affecting the I-55 corridor particularly hard. Joliet and the surrounding areas saw the highest accumulations, leading to instances of localized flooding and standing water in low-lying regions.

According to the National Weather Service, the weather outlook remains active, with the next significant chance of rainfall expected late Thursday into Friday. Residents in areas prone to flooding are advised to stay alert, as the coming storms could exacerbate the already saturated conditions. The weather service continues to monitor the situation and will provide updates as more information becomes available.
