A Flood Watch was extended until Friday evening as South Florida still deals with flooding from Tropical Storm Eta on top of more rainfall.

The flood watch for coastal Broward, coastal Miami-Dade, metro Broward and metro Miami-Dade remains in effect through Friday evening due to the water from recent rainfall still subsiding.

A Flood Advisory was also issued for the area until 9:45 p.m. Thursday, as well as a Flash Flood Warning for Miami-Dade County. Forecasters say flash flooding due to heavy rainfall is ongoing.

Rain chances come down late this week and weekend with virtually no rain in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday. It'll be a touch warmer with the added sunshine but South Florida gets a little treat Sunday in the form of lower humidity.

Highs will be in the mid-80s. Winds will be much calmer too, making for great boat and beach weather. Another treat comes next week as a front hits on Tuesday. Highs may not even hit 80 on Wednesday.
