Although Miami-Dade and Broward are not included in the “Cone,” it is important to be aware that the impacts from Fred will extend well out and away from the forecast cone and where the center is expected.
All of South Florida will be on the east side or “dirty side” of Fred. All the deep tropical moisture associated with Fred will lead to heavy rain, flooding, gusty winds, and the potential for tornadoes on Saturday.
The worst weather will likely take place Saturday around midday, afternoon, and evening hours when Fred moves across or near the Keys.
The moisture tail of Fred will keep us unsettled on Sunday with the potential for more rain and flooding. Fred is forecast to move northwest near or along the west coast of Florida through Sunday and is expected to make landfall somewhere along the Florida Panhandle late Sunday or early Monday morning.MORE NEWS: Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa Placed On Injured Reserve
