...Flood Watch until 8 PM EDT this Evening Broward County...
...Heavy Rainfall Possible Tonight...
...High Risk of Rip Currents East Coast Beaches...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Flooding: Periods of heavy rainfall are possible tonight, mainly
over the metro areas of the Broward and Palm Beach Counties where
the grounds have become saturated from the earlier rains.
These downpours will likely cause many areas of minor flooding on
roadways and poor drainage areas. Where the heaviest rain occurs,
more significant flooding is possible with water intruding on
vulnerable structures and causing impassable travel lanes and
roadways. A Flood Watch is in Effect until 8 PM EDT for Broward

Rip currents: There is a High Risk of Rip Currents for the Atlantic

Thunderstorms: Isolated thunderstorms are forecast over all of South
Florida. The primary impacts from the thunderstorms will be lightning
strikes along with heavy rainfall.

Waterspouts: A few waterspouts are possible over all local waters
with the stronger showers and thunderstorms.


Numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms with the threat of
localized flooding will continue on Monday. After a brief decrease
in showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday and Wednesday, another period
of heavy rainfall, thunderstorms and potential flooding is likely
starting Thursday and lasting into next weekend.

The risk of rip currents will remain elevated for the Atlantic
beaches through at least Wednesday.


Widespread spotter activation is not anticipated, however individual
spotters are encouraged to report flooding to the National Weather
Service forecast office in Miami.
