Rain continuing throughout the day is expected to create a soggy and wet Halloween, forecasters are warning.

Heavy rains and scattered thunderstorms blowing in from the southwest are expected to linger throughout the day, keeping the area blanketed in a steady rainfall, the National Weather Service is announcing on their website.

Between a half-inch of rain has already hit the ground in Lake County since midnight, while about an inch has fallen in parts of Dupage and Cook counties, according to the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network at cocorahs.org.

Chicago has seen about two inches of rainfall since last night, resulting in some standing water on viaducts, officials said.

Cook, DuPage and Kane counties remains under a flood advisory until about 9:30 a.m., the National Weather Service is reporting.

Forecasters are expecting another half-inch to an inch of rain to fall throughout the day Thursday. Temperatures are expected to top out at 64 degrees, before falling back to 48 degrees overnight Thursday.
