"Notice the latest track is pushed a little bit more to the west," WPTV First Alert meteorologist Kahtia Hall said.

Conditions are expected to improve throughout the day, although gusty winds and heavy rains will remain a factor in South Florida and the Keys.

A flood watch remains in effect for Palm Beach County until 7 p.m. Tuesday.
