Serious Flooding Affects Parts of Miami; Flood Advisory Issued for Broward

NBC Universal, Inc.

Storms producing heavy rainfall led to flooding in parts of South Florida, with some areas getting up to six inches of rain Tuesday.

Currently, a Flood Advisory is issued for a good portion of Broward County until 10:45 p.m. and covers areas such as Sunrise, Margate, Coral Springs and Pompano Beach.

A Flash Flood Warning covered parts of northern Miami-Dade County and lasted for several hours. Between four to six inches of rain have fallen, according to the National Weather Service.

Motorists are advised to turn around and avoid driving through flooded roads. Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of highways, streets, low-lying spots and more.

Morning temperatures climbed well into the mid to upper 70s, roughly 15 degrees warmer than average.

A tornado warning was issued for the northwestern portion of Broward County due to a strong storm over portions of the Everglades.

Rain should take a back seat on Wednesday as more sunshine is added to the forecast. Morning temperatures will remain in the 70s with highs right back to the mid-80s. Thursday looks quite similar to Wednesday.

Yet another front rolls in on Friday bringing with it a 30% chance of showers and a storm. This front will bring the cool down many of us have been looking for. Look for mostly sunny skies, a breeze with lows in the 50s Saturday morning.

Highs will top out in the mid-70s, slightly below average for this time of the year. We will be slightly warmer Sunday with morning temperatures back to the 60s with highs in the mid to upper 70s.
