More rain in South Florida
Widespread thunderstorms and showers will continue to plague most of South Florida on Sunday evening and persist throughout the week, according to an advisory issued by the National Weather Service in Miami.
Meteorologists expect the heavy rain to last all day Monday and Tuesday, before a wave of low air pressure traveling through the region is projected to break down later this week.
Starting Wednesday, the east coast will be dry in the mornings but will get on-and-off showers later in the day. Afternoon showers should continue through Friday, said Barry Baxter, a forecaster with the NWS in Miami.
But the conditions are not unusual for a typical Miami summer, Baxter said. Temperatures will remain in the mid 80s until Tuesday and rise to the low 90s later in the week.
On Sunday, heavy rains prompted a flood advisory was in effect until 2:45 p.m. for parts of north Miami-Dade and south Broward County, expected to affect low-lying streets in Miami, Brickell, Hollywood, Miami Beach, Coral Gables and Key Biscayne.
The NWS warned funnel clouds and wind gusts over 45 mph could form during the afternoon storms throughout the region.
“Lightning, along with localized flooding of roadways in low lying and poor drainage areas will be the primary hazards,” the weather service reported, adding there’s a possibility for “small hail” to fall this week.
