More heavy rain and vivid lightning tonight

storm_focusWe’re watching the radars as storms are now developing in a line smack dab over Illinois Highway 72 this afternoon, and again along US30 to the south. These will move from west to east this evening providing some more torrential rainfall. These spots received 2-3 inches of rain overnight so this may cause some more flooding of creeks and streams. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect through 10am Wednesday morning for Lee, DeKalb, and Ogle Co.

Thunderstorms will once again roam the skies later on as a stationary front lies just to the south of Rockford. Storms currently over Northwestern Iowa will ride eastbound and affect us after midnight. With temperatures in the upper 90s south of us and an abundance of moisture on top, storms will remain fairly likely. Overall, our severe threat will be very limited, other than torrential rainfall and very frequent lightning.
