He said Cook, McHenry and Lake counties have recorded less than a half-inch of rain in the same time span. However, thunderstorms capable of significant rainfall totals are expected to linger in northern Illinois through 11 a.m., then again after 3 p.m. until this evening, Mott said.

He said the warm weather is causing the atmosphere to be moist, which often results in more significant rainfall.

The National Weather Service website reports it will be mostly cloudy throughout the day wth high temperatures of about 84 degrees. There will also be south to southwest winds ranging between 5 mph and 15 mph.
