Flood Watch in effect through Wednesday night for metro Miami-Dade, Broward

Flash flood warning for Fort Lauderdale, Sunrise and Lauderhill in effect until 2 a.m.

MIAMI – A Flood Watch continues in Miami-Dade and Broward counties through 11 p.m. Wednesday.

Both counties have seen several inches of rain over the last couple of days, with some isolated areas seeing up to eight inches of rainfall between Tuesday and Wednesday.

The heavy downpours have led to saturated grounds across South Florida, which will likely lead to more flooding throughout Wednesday.

After unofficial reports of 10 inches of rain near Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday, soaking downpours will be slow to fade near the Broward coast for the early part of Wednesday evening.

Elsewhere across South Florida, the evening kicks off drier-- though it may take a while for standing water to recede in areas that are dealing with flooding.

A sporadic, passing shower cannot be ruled out as the night unfolds.

Thursday starts mostly dry in Miami-Dade and Broward, with sunshine breaking through the clouds.

As temperatures climb to the mid-80s, afternoon storms are expected to erupt. There may be some locally heavy rain associated with those storms.
