WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — It was a very active afternoon across the area with multiple flood warnings and advisories issued. Approximately 3-4 inches of rain has fallen and an additional 1 to 2 inches is expected.

We should start to dry out mid-evening under mostly cloudy skies. However, a stray late-night storm is not out of the question, especially near the coast.

High moisture will continue across the area this weekend leading to a good chance of mainly afternoon storms both days.
