FridayMay11

A period of showers, and possibly a thunderstorm or two, is likely across much of northern Illinois and Northwest Indiana late this morning through mid-afternoon as an upper-level disturbance shifts across the area. Otherwise, the area will remain in a rather active weather pattern for at least the next few days. While it will not be raining constantly, several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are likely to take aim on the area through the weekend. Some of these storms, particularly late Saturday and Saturday night will produce heavy downpours and possible localized flooding. Rainfall totals through Sunday will likely be 1″-2″ along and north of I-80.
