...Flood Watch Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties Until 11 AM...
...Gusty Winds with Showers and Isolated Thunderstorms...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Flooding: Periods of heavy rainfall are expected today, mainly over
metro Southeast Florida this morning through midday and over
interior and Gulf coast areas this afternoon and early evening. 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.

Rip currents: Southeast wind of 15 to 20 mph will lead to a moderate
risk of rip currents at the Atlantic beaches.

Thunderstorms: Isolated thunderstorms are expected over Southeast
Florida, as well as the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Lake Okeechobee
waters this morning through midday, with a few thunderstorms also
spreading to the interior and Gulf coast this afternoon and early
evening as well as the adjacent Gulf waters.

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

Wind: Gusty showers and thunderstorms may produce wind gusts of 40 to
45 mph, mainly over Atlantic waters and Southeast Florida through
midday, and interior and Gulf coast and the Gulf of Mexico waters
this afternoon and early evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

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 as deep tropical
moisture associated with a developing low pressure area surges north
over the region.

The risk of rip currents will remain moderate to high at the Atlantic
beaches through at least Wednesday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

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