Why the heavy rain?

With rainfall totals near 6 inches in Stephenson County and over 10 inches in parts of JoDaviess, we certainly do not need anymore precipitation, but our wish may not be granted this afternoon. A frontal boundary is situated right along I-80 as of the noon hour. Storms will likely fire along this front much like they did last evening. Precipitable water values over 2.5″ overhead mean that if you were to condense the water out of a column of air, that is how much rain you would get without any further action.

We will have the potential for more flooding this afternoon and tonight depending on where storms set up. As of now, the heaviest rain may occur a bit further south of hardest hit areas.

    Even with the heaviest potential being south, is everyone expected to see a decent amount of rain/storms today?
