..Heavy Rain Potential Continues through the Weekend Across South Florida...

A trough of low pressure will remain over the Gulf of Mexico this
weekend allowing for tropical moisture to continue to work into
the region from the south southeast, with the potential for heavy
showers and thunderstorms through the weekend. Most areas will
see between 3 and 5 inches of rain during this period, but
locally higher amounts are possible. Despite ongoing drought
conditions, several periods of heavy rain may lead to local
flooding concerns through the weekend.

The grounds in Palm Beach and Broward Counties is starting to
become saturated, due to the rainfall amounts of 4 to 7 inches
with some isolated areas seeing up to 10 inches that has already
fallen since early last weekend. If the forecast rainfall
continues to pan out in the next few days, then a Flood Watch may
be needed for portions of the eastern South Florida for this
weekend. At this time, there is also a marginal risk of flooding
across all of South Florida Saturday and Sunday from the Weather
Prediction Center (WPC).
