    Strong wind and rain will visit South Florida for a few hours.

    Swirling gray clouds moving in to South Florida should let you know that we're not in Kansas anymore.

    The frightful weather is expected to pummel Broward and Miami-Dade County with strong winds, thunderstorms and even hail for about two hours before passing through.

    Weather Forecast -- 11:30 AM -- April 5, 2011

    It's so scary outside, Miami International Airport has canceled 19 flights Tuesday.

    Broward is expected to be hit first with possible gusts of up to 60 miles per hour, rendering most umbrellas as useless as toothpicks for cover. There is also the chance of penny-sized hail.

    The squall line will then enter northern Miami-Dade by 2:45 p.m.

    It appears the line of thunderstorms is weakening as it crosses South Florida, but this is more than an April shower.

    All the storms should clear south by 4:30 p.m. leaving clouds and patchy drizzle.

    Skies will clear tonight, with drier and somewhat cooler air coming in by early Wednesday.
