Rainy Weather

ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) -- More rain appears headed for northern Illinois and the drenched city of Rockford, one day after the governor declared the city and Winnebago County a state disaster area.

The National Weather Service says Rockford got more than five inches of rain Monday night and yesterday, and more precipitation is in the forecast for the region today.

Meteorologist Richard Brumer says showers this afternoon could bring between half an inch to an inch and a half more rain, with up to four inches falling in isolated locations. He says heavier rains that could cause flooding will likely strike after midnight.

The flooding occurred in the same area as last year's Labor Day flood, which displaced hundreds of Rockford residents.
