Flooding Rains

Posted by Vivian Gonzalez

*Urban flood advisory in effect for Eastern Broward county until 1pm.

Reports:

-Miami Shores: Roadways impassable along NE 95th-98th St. and NE 12th Ave. Also, 9600 block of NE 6th Ave.

-City of Miami: Stalled vehicles reported by NW 7th St. between NW 57 and 72nd Ave.

-Coral Springs: Water reached as high as the bumpers on NW 126th St. and 39th Ave.

South Florida deep moisture continues to move onshore moving slowly producing heavy rains at times. The rain so far has been widespread and at some point parts of South Florida heard the rumbles of thunder. A flood advisory was in place for Southeast Broward and Northeast Miami-Dade through the majority of the morning and now an advisory is in effect for Eastern Broward until 1pm.

Why the rain?

We have a disturbance over South Florida and an upper-level low just dragging moisture our way. It looks like this wet pattern will continue for one more day and improvements can be expected on Friday. This means hotter, drier with seasonal inland afternoon storms type of weather will be around. Therefore, we have to get through today and tomorrow, then we can look forward to the weekend!

Use caution out on the roadways South Florida and keep it here to your Storm Station for the latest!

Major Changes

Posted by Brent Cameron

A drastic weather change is on the way.  As the week continues, south Florida will experience something rare:  a steady surge of brisk air spilling down from the north!   The "main batch" of winter-type air will follow a strong cold front crossing late Wednesday.  How cold will it get?   Nighttime lows will settle back into the 40s (for at least a couple nights) while daytime highs struggle to reach even 60-degrees.   Keep in mind, temperatures this season have been exceptionally warm.  Further, when we've had a little encounter with cooler conditions, they just haven't lasted very long!

WINTER CHILL: COMING SOON

Posted by Brent Cameron

Just last week, south Florida had a dose of "rare air" with a brief chilly change.   For a short time, we received our coldest temperatures since last March!   Now, we're tracking another strong cold front that ALSO has a high chance of dropping temperatures about 20-degrees (or more)!   The coldest time frame will be from late Wednesday night through Friday afternoon.  In fact, wake-up readings on Friday morning will range from the lower 40s inland, to the middle and upper 40s between the metro areas and beach locations!
