The rain enters Palm Beach and Broward late Saturday afternoon, then the wet weather works its way down through Miami-Dade and the Keys through the night. Leftover showers are expected early Sunday followed by sunnier skies in the afternoon as high pressure builds over the eastern U.S.
In addition, blustery northeast winds are expected Sunday and early next week with gusts near 30 mph. This will cause hazardous marine conditions for the end of the weekend and into next week.MORE NEWS: Missing Swimmer Off Miami Beach Found
