Flood Risk Continues in Portion of South Florida through Thursday

Localized flooding will continue to be possible across portions of South Florida through Thursday, thanks to tropical moisture being funneled in by a disturbance south of Cuba.

A Flood Watch continues through at least Wednesday evening for coastal and metro areas of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center says the disturbance south of Cuba has a “low chance” of tropical development in the next five days as it moves east of Florida and toward the Bahamas. At the present time, this disturbance does not pose an immediate or significant tropical threat to the State of Florida. However the presence of nearby tropical moisture could enhance rainfall rates in portions of South Florida over the coming days, or until the system moves farther away from the Sunshine State.

NHC: Low chance of tropical development in next five days.
