Storms moving out of South Florida, but more rain ahead

Betty Davis says new system with bring thunder, lightning, gusty winds to Keys


PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – A line of strong storms brought heavy rain and scattered thundershowers to Broward and Miami-Dade counties Tuesday, slowing traffic throughout the region.

By late afternoon, those storms were in the process of moving out of South Florida, but another potent system coming from the Gulf of Mexico is expected to bring more rain to the Florida Keys and eventually Miami-Dade County. The Keys could see thunder, lightning and gusty winds.

“Just because we shut down some of the stronger storms does not mean we couldn’t have more showers returning out there a little bit later this afternoon,” Local 10 News meteorolgist Betty Davis said.

A significant weather advisory was in place for southeastern mainland Monroe County and Miami-Dade County until 1 p.m. 

Otherwise, it was another warm day with high temperatures in the mid-80s and a heat index in the low 90s.
