Flooding with locally heavy rain will remain a threat through early Saturday.
Thunderstorms with frequent lightning and gusty winds will continue to be a player in the forecast Friday through Saturday. Some storms may produce wind gusts from 40 – 55 mph.
Here’s an important safety reminder: if you are outdoors and can hear thunder, that’s your “cue” to get indoors. It’s called the 30/30 rule.
If it takes less than 30 seconds to hear thunder after seeing the flash, lightning is near enough to pose a threat; after the storm ends, wait 30 minutes before resuming outdoor activities.
The ground has become very saturated over the last several days, so any additional heavy rain could quickly trigger areas of flooding.
The storm threat diminishes slightly on Sunday.READ MORE: Miami-Dade Students Honored For 'Doing The Right Thing" And Helping Save Lives
High temperatures will range from the upper 80s to near 90 each day, with overnight temperatures near 80.
