...Flood Watch for Broward County Until 8 PM...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Flooding: Periods of heavy rainfall are expected today, mainly over
metro Southeast Florida 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. A Flood Watch is in
Effect until 8 PM EDT for Broward County.

Rip currents: There is a moderate risk of rip currents for the
Atlantic beaches.

Thunderstorms: Isolated thunderstorms are forecast 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: Wind in excess of 20 kts are possible across the Atlantic
waters today.


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.
