WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Tropical moisture is bringing rounds of heavy rainfall this week, causing a flood watch for Palm Beach County to be extended through Thursday evening. There's a chance the flood watch could be extended through the end of the week or weekend.

The flood watch also extends to Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties, but not the Treasure Coast.

Forecasters said the heavy rainfall could produce excessive runoff and may result in flooding of low-lying areas, areas with poor drainage and flood-prone locations.
