Floods Still Possible As Boca Weather Remains Rough

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The storm may have passed but the somewhat rough weather continues throughout the area, and the National Weather Service says this pattern will continue throughout the day.

A flood watch and a flash flood watch remain in effect. While it is unlikely South Palm Beach County will be washed out to sea, there is always the possibility of rising waters. More importantly, if you are out and about, keep in mind that the puddle you see in the street may be much deeper than you expect. We have seen significant wells of water on Glades and Palmetto Park Road.

Here’s the latest from the National Weather Service:

AND REPLACED WITH A WIND ADVISORY ACROSS THE MAINLAND AND A GALE WARNING

OF FREQUENT WIND GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 35 MPH. SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES ARE
IN EFFECT ALSO FOR THE PALM BEACH WATERS AND LAKE OKEECHOBEE.

FLOODING: THERE IS ALSO THE CONCERN FOR FLASH FLOODING, PARTICULARLY ACROSS
THE WEST PALM BEACH METROPOLITAN AREA WHERE THE HEAVIEST RAINS (GENERALLY
5 TO 10 INCHES WITH LOCAL AMOUNTS AS HIGH AS 10 TO 15 INCHES) OCCURRED
SINCE YESTERDAY. ADDITIONAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 4 INCHES ARE LIKELY,

SOUTH FLORIDA.
