MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A flood watch is in effect for all of South Florida through Monday morning.

The remnants of Tropical Storm Erika combined with a low pressure system over the northern Gulf coast will get us periods of strong thunderstorms capable of producing winds of over 50 mph and flooding.

The storms are expected to become more scattered by Sunday afternoon and evening, however, these scattered but strong storms will remain in the forecast through at least the middle of the week.

Highs mostly in the 80s, nighttime in the mid-70s.

Tropical Storm Fred formed this morning off the coast of Africa and a hurricane warning is in effect for the Cape Verde Islands.

This is only the 4th tropical storm in history to form that far east.

It’s expected to remain well out to sea through this week with the computer models taking it well north of the Leeward Islands in the next seven days.
