It will be a rainy Monday. Heavy rain at times and thunderstorms have been in the area overnight and will continue through Monday morning and end by midnight.

Much of the area is expected to get over an inch of rain. This will lead to rises on area streams and rivers and perhaps minor ponding on roads. Joliet is expected to get 1 to 1 and a half inches of rain by late tonight. Showers everyday this week with the exception of Friday.
