A flood watch for Palm Beach County is in effect through Thursday evening as the threat for more rounds of soaking rain continues.

Excessive rainfall will stay in the forecast with additional rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches possible, with some areas seeing locally higher additional rain.

"In total, from Tuesday, we're expecting to see rainfall totals anywhere from 4 inches to, at most, 7 inches," WPTV First Alert Weather meteorologist Frances Peyton said.


Keep the rain gear on standby as you will need it today and the rest of the week. Expect a few breaks in the rain showers, but they will be brief.

Temperatures remain mild in the low to mid-80s through the rest of the week.

Friday, we continue the unsettled trend and again are tracking the chance of 1 to 2 inches of additional rainfall across South Florida.

It looks even better come Sunday, Father's Day, with peaks of sunshine returning! However, rain chances are still in the forecast for Sunday. It is, at least, a bit of an improvement.

Temperatures will be warming up over the weekend. Saturday will be in the mid-80s and Sunday in the upper 80s.

There is one area of interest that shows a 20% chance of tropical development in the next seven days.

This is currently looking like it could potentially strengthen into a tropical depression, at the most, after it passes across Florida and is off the U.S. east coast.
