Chicago Rainfall Totals

Chicago Weather: Eye-Popping Rainfall Totals Add Up Across the Area

NBCUniversal Media, LLC

The Chicago area has been inundated with rain in recent days, and the National Weather Service has released some eye-popping rainfall totals from the last 72 hours.

In Emington, located in Livingston County, a total of 8.16 inches of rain have fallen in the last three days, according to NWS reports. Ashkum, located in Iroquois County, has reported 6.81 inches of rain, while Manhattan, located in Will County, has reported nearly six inches of rain in just the last three days.

Unfortunately for residents in those areas, the heavy rainfall is expected to continue, as the chance of rain will linger in the forecast for several days. That rain, fueled by additional moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, could cause localized flooding in some locations, and has already pushed several rivers, including the Illinois River and Kankakee River, close to flood stage.
