Flood Watch Issued Through Saturday for South Florida as Heavy Rain Expected

South Florida will be in for some wet weather over the next few days with flood watches in effect through Saturday as heavy rain is expected.

The National Weather Service issued a flood watch for Miami-Dade, Broward, Monroe and Palm Beach starting at 11 a.m. Thursday and running through 8 a.m. on Saturday.

While forecasters are not calling for rain the entire time, conditions are present for heavy rains that could cause serious flooding in some areas.

The rain was already causing some street flooding, including the Interstate 95 south ramp to North Miami/Bal Harbour/NW 125th Street, which was closed and later reopened Thursday morning.

Officials at Miami International Airport said the bad weather was already causing delays. They urged travelers to check with their airlines for updates and allow extra time.

Due to the slow moving nature of these storms, several inches of rain is likely in spots through the weekend.
