Heavy rain and gusty winds moved through South Florida Wednesday night and the wet weather — though not as severe — was expected to continue into Thursday.
By 10 p.m., the National Weather Service canceled a severe thunderstorm watch that had been in effect for Miami-Dade, Monroe, Broward, Palm Beach, Glades, Hendry and Collier counties.
While Miami-Dade and Monroe counties were not originally included in the watch, both counties were added at about 6 p.m. as storms began to move through the region.
Arlena Moses, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said most of South Florida saw some pretty strong winds. Weston reported gusts up to 61 miles per hour.
Never miss a local story.
“We did see some widespread winds across South Florida,” Moses said.
The storms came ahead of a cold front pushing through. The front was expected to be in South Florida Thursday, which could mean some more rain — but not probably not a drastic temperature change.
The weather should improve by the weekend, Moses said.
