    A Flood watch was issued for parts of Broward and Miami-Dade Monday as periodic showers and isolated thunderstorms moved through the area.

    The Flood Watch will continue until 8 p.m. Should additional rain lead to flooding, a Flood Advisory will be issued. But so far, there have been no reports of flooding or damages from the rain.

    In Monroe County, the sheriff's office said one southbound lane is closed at mile marker 103 due to standing water. Driving conditions are difficult in the area. Also, a waterspout touched down at mile marker 97, authorities said.

    By Monday afternoon, the temperatures were expected to be in the upper 70s. It will be breezy with sustained winds up to 25 mph.

    The National Weather Service said the rain should start tapering off on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Dry improvements should develop by late week and weekend.
