Mostly Cloudy, Another Round Of Afternoon Storms – CBS Miami
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A flood watch will remain in effect for parts of South Florida, including Broward and Miami-Dade counties, through Wednesday evening.
Wednesday started cloudy, until noon there were showers, which then quickly increased to rains. Flooding is a major threat for Wednesday afternoons and evenings, as the ground has been saturated with soaked rain from the past two days. Any heavy rain in areas that have seen heavy rainfall in the past few days has a greater potential for flooding.

Rainfall accumulation for Wednesday is forecast to be between 1 “and 3”, but higher amounts are possible in isolated areas.
A low pressure valley still hangs over the area, but it will begin to recede and dissolve by Thursday.

So for Wednesday the current in the atmosphere is still from the southwest, but a southeast turn is expected on Thursday as the Atlantic high pressure builds up again. A southeast current will play a key role in driving any storm activity south inland Florida for Thursday afternoon.
For Friday and through Father’s Day weekend, even fewer chances of rain are predicted thanks to Saharan Dust, which will sweep through the Caribbean and Florida. This dry air mass will help stabilize the weather pattern. With less rain, however, South Florida will have to deal with hotter temperatures and hazy sunshine this weekend.

The forecast high temperatures for Wednesday are in the upper 80s, and then heat up especially when the pattern begins to dry out a little. Ninety degree weather is expected on Thursday, Friday, and weekend afternoons. The morning low temperatures mostly stay in the upper 70s or lower 80s.
