A wet week is on tap for the Chicago area with rain in the forecast each day through Friday.

A few thunderstorms will accompany the rain on Tuesday; however, it does not appear like any storm will bring severe weather to the city.

In total, nearly 2 inches of rain can pile up through Tuesday, which could result in some flooding, especially in low lying and poor drainage areas. If you encounter a water-covered roadway, turn around and find an alternate route.

The wide-reaching storm responsible for the wet weather will meander in the region through the end of the week but it will gradually weaken.

Nonetheless, plenty of clouds, showers and cool weather can be anticipated to linger in the area through Friday.
