Heavy rain causes minor flooding throughout Chicago area

Flash flood warning issued for portions of Oahu, flash flood watch for all islands

"The rounds of rain could produce 1-3" of rain or more across the area through Wednesday. It may not be spring on the calendar, but it sure feels like it with the temperature and the rain.

Meteorologists say temperatures could fall near freezing in that region Tuesday night and into early Wednesday, resulting in possible brief freezing rain.

In terms of total rainfall through Wednesday morning, it still appears that many of us have the potential to exceed two inches by Wednesday morning.

The rainfall, combined with melting snow and rapid runoff due to frozen ground, could flood low-lying areas, according to the weather service.

As Mike Spiel's forecast shows, the Flood Watch for our area continues now until 6 p.m. tonight.

Temperatures in the 50s and low 60s this evening will go into a steepening decline overnight, ultimately settling into the middle and upper 30s by daybreak.

Tobin said right now, our area is at a fine break-over point of whether we're going to actually experience flooding.

High-standing water is being reported in many areas.

Heavy rain is causing flooding throughout the Chicago area.

Warmer temperatures melting the snow and repeated downpours will elevate the risk of flash, urban and river flooding across southeast MI.

The Flood Warning also includes the Yellow River affecting Marshall, Starke and St. Jospeh Counties in IN as well as the Tippecanoe River near Ora, affecting Marshall, Fulton and Kosciusko Counties in Indiana.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of rain and snow showers.
