Reports say Evanston got nearly two inches of rain overnight, less than some communities south of Chicago, but still enough to cause some scattered minor flooding.

Forecasts say we should get a break from the rain for at least the next 36 hours, but the wet June weather is expected to resume after that and continue for much of the rest of the month.

At least it keeps everything looking green!
