Forecasters with the National Weather Service in Chicago say a mild but rainy Halloween is in store for the area. Some areas, generally south of a LaSalle to Chicago line, saw 1 to locally over two inches of rain overnight, and the potential remains for additional locally heavy rainfall today across the same general area. Heavy rainfall will cause minor flooding of low lying and poorly drained areas, as well as some street flooding. Meteorologists say thunderstorms are possible this afternoon, mainly south of Chicago, and an isolated severe storm is possible with gusty winds. Rain is expected to taper off and end from west to east this evening, behind a cold front, but this afternoon temps are expected to stay in the 60s before talling into the 50s by early evening.
