northwestern Will County in northeastern Illinois...
central Kane County in northeastern Illinois...
south central Cook County in northeastern Illinois...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into

deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Special Statement

Statement as of 2:22 PM EDT on July 29, 2016

Expires 6:00 PM EDT on July 29, 2016


... Funnel clouds possible this afternoon...

Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of
isolated funnel clouds... associated with the thunderstorm activity
over parts of northern Illinois and Northwest Indiana. These
funnel clouds normally protrude a few hundred feet downward from
the parent cloud... rotate or spin like a top... and last a few
minutes before dissipating.

These funnel clouds rarely touch the ground and typically do not
pose any sort of hazard. The atmospheric conditions these funnels
are developing in do not support strong or damaging tornadoes.
However... on extremely rare occassions these funnels can briefly
touch the ground and produce minimal if any damage.

The National Weather Service will continue to closely monitor the
situation. Please forward reports of funnel sightings to the
nearest law enforcement agency for relay to the National Weather
Service.
