Issued: 2:03 PM EDT May. 25, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch in effect from Saturday morning through Sunday
evening...

The National Weather Service in Miami has issued a

* Flood Watch for a portion of South Florida, including the
following areas, coastal Broward, coastal Collier, coastal
Miami-Dade, coastal Palm Beach, far South Miami-Dade, Glades,
Hendry, inland Broward, inland Collier, inland Miami-Dade,
inland Palm Beach, Mainland Monroe, Metro Broward, Metro
Miami- Dade, and Metro Palm Beach.

* From Saturday morning through Sunday evening

* widespread rainfall amounts of 4 to 8 inches are expected due to
deep tropical moisture streaming northward into South Florida.
Locally much higher amounts are possible. Rainfall of this
magnitude may lead to flooding.

* Grounds are fairly saturated from rainfall earlier in the week
so additional rainfall will more easily runoff and lead to
flooding. Flooding of canals, streets, and underpasses, as well
as other drainage areas and low-lying spots can be expected.
The hardest hit areas may see water intruding on vulnerable
structures and causing impassable travel lanes and roadways.

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.
