Thunderstorms, floods, gusty winds and heavy rain pounded Miami-Dade County Saturday -- but Sunday isn’t looking any better.

The forecast looks to be a battle between heat and rain.

For most of the county, the highs will be in the high-80s, low-90s, according to the National Weather Service. The heat index for the day says that it will feel like it is in the low-100s.

But heat isn’t Miami-Dade’s only weather contender. The weather service is also predicting a 50-to-60% chance of showers and thunderstorms.

The weather service said that some areas, like Homestead, could be seeing a tenth to a quarter inch of rainfall.
