The Main Street Nights concert series is canceled this evening due to the threat of severe weather.
Village officials said the goal is to reschedule, but at this time, it is still being determined if and when that will happen.
Forecasters said a low-pressure system is straddling a stationary front over Chicagoland. As the low moves towards Illinois, it will tap into some unstable air, causing thunderstorms. The instability in the atmosphere will not only cause thunderstorms but heavy rains.
As of Wednesday morning, the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Flood Watch for Cook and Will Counties, including the Village of Park Forest, until 7 p.m.
A Flood Watch for flash flooding means rapid-onset flooding is possible, but not yet certain, based on the latest forecasts.
The NWS said flash flooding is a dangerous situation. Persons interested in area rivers, creeks, and other waterways should monitor the latest forecasts and be prepared to take action should flooding
develop. For the latest forecast, click here.
At this time, other events planned for the Village later this week, such as the Ice Cream Social, are still scheduled. However, Village officials are monitoring the latest forecast and will make any announcements if necessary.
