.NOW...Through mid morning...A moderate and moist southeast flow
will produce moderate to locally heavy rains across Martin, Saint
Lucie, and Indian River counties early this morning then shift
into the interior during the day. A quick one to three inches of
rain, locally higher along the Treasure Coast, will cause
temporary flooding of roads and poor drainage areas, especially
where previous heavy rains have recently fallen.

Isolated lightning storms will also be possible. Motorists should
slow down if heavy rain is encountered and do not proceed through
water of unknown depth.

Winds up to around 34 knots will be possible in heavier activity
over inland lakes and along the intracoastal and near shore Atlantic
waters today. Boaters should be on the lookout for storms
approaching from the south and move to safe harbor if storms
threaten.
