MIAMI – A flood watch continues until Sunday night for Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties.

A stationary front will continue to hover over South Florida into the weekend. The less humid, refreshing air behind the front will stay to the north — this will keep everyone from the Keys to Fort Lauderdale in a sticky, tropical air mass.

Even though we are expecting numerous rounds of heavy rain through Sunday, there will be will breaks in between. While there aren’t any days that look like a complete washout from start to finish, rain that does fall could produce flooding.

Downpours that hit during high tide could be especially troublesome for coastal areas. King tides are expected to fill drains during times of high tide and will not be able to drain rainfall as efficiently.

Upcoming high tide times for Miami Harbor:

  • Thursday: 9:20 p.m.
  • Friday: 9:42 a.m.
  • Friday: 9:54 p.m.
  • Saturday: 10:18 a.m.
  • Saturday: 10:28 p.m.

Rainfall amounts are expected to range from around 3″ to as much as 6″ through Monday.
