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.

“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.
