The Chicago National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for metropolitan Chicago from late Friday night through Saturday night, and advises that "major to record flooding [is] expected this weekend." Computer models suggest that 1 to 3 inches of rain will fall across the area by Sunday morning -- 1-inch totals most likely toward Rockford and 3-inch totals across southern sections and northwest Indiana.It's just great...factor in the thunderstorm possibilities and we're looking at a very wet Shabbas this weekend.
A period of freezing rain, sleet and hazardously icy conditions is likely early Friday before temperatures climb above freezing. Warming that continues into Saturday carries temperatures into the 50s.

It's the end of the world as we know it...
It's Friday and that means a flash flood warning for the Chicago vicinity. In addition to the 40 degree temperatures that will inevitably melt the snow throughout the day, you have to deal with the coming rainfall.
