[ARCHIVED] Niles Prepares for Potential Storm

Steady rains are anticipated to move into the area between 1-3am this morning, persisting into late Wednesday morning. Rainfall will be steady and moderate intensity, with periods of heavy rain likely. There will also be a threat for low to medium amounts of lightning and wind gusts to 60 mph. Some reduction in rain and storms is anticipated after 11am-noon tomorrow, with storms possibly reforming overhead or just to your south around 2-3pm. These would have a bit less intensity, with wind gusts to 35 mph and heavy downpours being the main risks. Your rain chances end between 4-6pm, if not a bit sooner should storms fire up to your south in the afternoon hours. Event-total rainfall of 1.50-2.50 inches. This will lead to widespread flooding and pockets of flash flooding.

Public Services are making sure drains are clear, dropping off barricades at intersections, and getting equipment ready in case we get high winds.

Residents, please move cars to high grounds, check to make sure drains are clear of debris, and, if you have a basement, please keep an eye out and make sure valuables are moved off the floors.
