Flash Flood Warning Issued as South Florida Deals With Flooding From Eta

While Tropical Storm Eta has already made landfall in the Florida Keys, South Florida will feel drenched for days to come due to the effects of the system.

A Flash Flood Warning was issued for parts of Broward and Miami-Dade counties Monday evening and will last until 10:30 p.m. Between 1 to 3 inches of rain is expected to fall on top of the already rainfall amounts of 7 and 12 inches that has fallen over this area during the last 24 hours from heavy rain bands.

Some locations that will experience flash flooding include Miami, Hialeah, Fort Lauderdale, Miramar, Davie, Miami Beach, Plantation, Sunrise, Surfside, Miami Gardens, Hallandale, Lauderhill, Weston, North Miami, Doral, North Miami Beach, Aventura and Dania Beach.

Eta continues to move to the west and we should see marginal improvement for your Monday. Hurricane warnings have dropped for the Keys along with the storm surge watches and warnings.

In addition, hurricane watches have dropped as well, just leaving South Florida under a tropical storm warning. Flood watches remain in effect through Tuesday evening.

Rain chances continue to drop this week with the warmth returning. Winds should be much calmer by late week.
