    Scientists are watching the disorganized group of thunderstorms to make sure it doesn't come together and become a more formidable menace like a tropical depression or tropical storm.

    But even without a name, the weather system is expected to bring heavy flooding to Broward and Miami-Dade counties and the Florida Keys. The heavy rains could start as early as 8 a.m. but what makes it a real problem is the weather could be continuous for 24 hours, not allowing drainage systems to move the water fast enough in some low-lying areas.

    There is also a chance of tornadoes popping up.

    Umbrellas, raincoats, boots and stilts might be good fashion choices for the rest of the week.
