WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A flood watch is in effect for Palm Beach County and all parts south through Friday evening.

More storms are in the forecast for Wednesday evening. This active weather pattern will continue through the start of the weekend all thanks to an area of low pressure in the mid-levels of the atmosphere that's moving over the Gulf of Mexico toward Florida.

This area of disturbed weather has a low chance for development in the next two to five days. Regardless of development, this will be the reason for the tropical downpours each and every afternoon through Saturday as it drags tropical moisture across the Sunshine State.

Localized flooding is possible for the Palm Beaches and Treasure for the next few days, along with the threat of isolated strong to severe storms.

Afternoon temperatures will remain in the mid-80s all week while overnight lows will be in the 70s. Lower rain chances return on Sunday and early next week.
