A Flood Watch was issued Tuesday evening for much of South Florida.
The advisory is in effect through Wednesday evening and covers coastal Broward, coastal Miami-Dade, far south Miami-Dade, inland Miami-Dade, Metro Broward and Metro Miami-Dade.
A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. Rainfall of 2 to 4 inches is expected, with up to 6 inches in isolated areas.
Gusty east winds and deep tropical moisture will be with us for at least the next few days. The breeze is responsible for a small craft advisory, high risk of rip currents and a coastal flood advisory.
Flooding could be worse for the coast due to the combination of higher than normal tides and that pesky east breeze.
The gusty winds and unsettled conditions should fade by late week and into the weekend. Highs should return to the mid to upper 80s.
