...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...

The Flood Watch continues for

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

* Through this evening

* Periods of heavy rainfall are possible into Thursday. Additional
  rain accumulations of 1 to 2 inches, with isolated amounts
  greater than 4 inches possible.

* Heavy rainfall may produce flooding and/or flash flooding in
  urban locations as well as small creeks, streams, and canals.
  This is especially true for areas that recently received heavy
  rainfall, and for areas near the coast due to the combination of
  heavy rain and astronomically high tides.

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.
