We have pretty good chances for rainfall (at least 60-70% each day) over the next 4 days. The biggest threat will be flooding as our ground is already very saturated, but a couple of strong thunderstorms would not be out of the question.

The forecast gets pretty tricky over the weekend with Cristobal and all the moisture that moves north along with it.

The European Model has Cristobal a little farther away from us (west) and has less rainfall for South Florida through Monday.

The American Model has Cristobal a little closer to us and more rainfall for South Florida through Monday.

This morning, partly to mostly cloudy with isolated rainfall possible. Warm and humid across South Florida.

This afternoon, scattered to numerous showers and a few thunderstorms are possible. Some rainfall will be heavy and localized flooding is possible. Flood Watches remain in effect for our area today. High temperatures will reach the low to mid 80s under mostly cloudy skies. Winds will remain light out of the southeast.

Tonight, mostly cloudy with isolated to scattered rainfall possible. Low temperatures in the 70s and light southeasterly winds.
Saturday, partly sunny with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms possible. Some heavy rainfall and localized flooding is possible. High temperatures in the mid to upper 80s and breezy southeasterly winds.

Sunday, partly to mostly cloudy with high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. Scattered to numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms are possible. Some rainfall could be heavy causing localized flooding.
