    Those living along the coastline in Broward and Miami-Dade counties are preparing for the expected flooding that comes with the event known as King Tide.

    A flood watch is in effect beginning at midnight Thursday until 6 a.m. Friday for Miami-Dade and Broward.

    A coastal flood advisory is also in effect for both areas until 4 a.m. Thursday thanks to a combination of the tides along with a forecast of more than three inches of rain and a persistent easterly wind of 20 to 30 miles per hour over the next few days.

    Tuesday’s high tides at Miami Harbor are at 7:25 a.m. and 7:49 p.m. while Wednesday's high tides will be at 8:11 a.m. and 8:32 p.m. The most vulnerable spots are coastal roads, parking lots, underground garages & structures and docks.

    In Hollywood Lakes Tuesday morning, some flooding was already seen in some coastal areas.

    A Small Craft Advisory and High Rip Current Risk are also in effect through at least Wednesday night.
