Line of Storms From Eta Expected to Bring Downpours to South Florida

NBC Universal, Inc.

A line of thunderstorms from the outer bands of Tropical Storm Eta is making its way through South Florida Wednesday.

A severe thunderstorm warning is in effect for central Miami-Dade County until 6:15 p.m.

The breeze continues Wednesday with a 50% chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Despite the west coast of Florida seeing the most rain moving forward, the flood watch continues for Broward and Miami-Dade through Thursday evening. This is mostly due to the heavy rains that have already fallen.

Any additional rain could cause flooding. Highs will top out in the mid-80s with feels like temperatures well above 90.

Rain chances go up a touch as we head into Thursday. Deep moisture and a southerly flow will bring a 60% chance of rain to the region, but there is good news on the horizon. Expect much lower rain chances and more sunshine late week and into the weekend. In fact, you'll notice a decent drop in humidity by Sunday.

A brand new front will continue to usher in lower humidity early next week, and some cooler numbers.
