MIAMI (CBSMiami) – South Florida is in store for another stormy day. For the 5th day in a row, storms will fire up here in South Florida.
The National Weather Service in Miami issued a flood watch for most of the South Florida region.
Thursday, many spots in South Florida including Key West, Ft Lauderdale and West Palm had record rainfall.
Friday morning, conditions have been cleared by CBS4 meteorologist Jeff Berardelli says storms are expected to redevelop late in the morning and into the afternoon hours. Some of these storms will be strong, according to Berardelli.
The storms the past few days have had unusually frequent lightning and torrential downpours and that could continue with the rain expected Friday.
Flooding will once again be a major concern as well. The ground is completely saturated in spots and any extra rainfall will run off or pond creating street flooding and causing cumbersome driving conditions. The storms will gradually wind down this evening as the temperatures cool.
The storm creating all of this severe weather is a very slow mover so conditions will only gradually improve over the weekend. Saturday expect a few lingering storms with sun at times.
Sunday should be the better weekend day with a mix of sun and clouds but still a leftover shower or storm.
