CHICAGO (CBS) — A soggy start to the week proved to be the second largest February rain event on record for the Chicago area, with some rivers nearing or reaching record levels thanks to multiple rounds of heavy rain from Sunday night through Wednesday morning.

In total, Chicago had 2.68 inches of rain over that stretch of more than three days, according to the National Weather Service. The only rain event in February that was wetter was in 1997, when the city got 4.08 inches of rain from Feb. 20 to Feb. 22.

Chicago also had its second wettest February calendar day on record on Tuesday, when 2.1 inches fell at O’Hare International Airport, trailing only the record of 3.24 inches on Feb. 21, 1997.

The heaviest rain totals fell from east central Illinois to northwest Indiana, where 4 to 6.5 inches of rain were measured over the past few days.

Here are the rain totals for northern Illinois and northwest Indiana from Sunday night through Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service:
