...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM EDT THIS MORNING
THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of South Florida, including the following areas,
  Coastal Broward, Coastal Collier, Coastal Miami-Dade, Coastal
  Palm Beach, Far South Miami-Dade, Glades, Hendry, Inland
  Broward, Inland Collier, Inland Miami-Dade, Inland Palm Beach,
  Mainland Monroe, Metro Broward, Metro Miami-Dade, and Metro
  Palm Beach.

* From 8 AM EDT this morning through Sunday evening

* Widespread rainfall amounts of 4 to 8 inches are expected due to
  deep tropical moisture streaming northward into South Florida.
  Locally much higher amounts are possible. Rainfall of this
  magnitude may lead to flooding.

* Grounds are fairly saturated from rainfall earlier in the week
  so additional rainfall will more easily runoff and lead to
  flooding. Flooding of canals, streets, and underpasses, as well
  as other drainage areas and low-lying spots can be expected. The
  hardest hit areas may see water intruding on vulnerable
  structures and causing impassable travel lanes and roadways.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
