Dangerous Thunderstorm Alert In Effect

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — EarthNetworks — the team behind the popular WeatherBug app and service — has issued a severe thunderstorm alert for the greater Boca Raton area.

It is in effect until roughly 5pm.

The strong storms already moving through the area have not — as of yet — had any impact to tonight’s celebrations at South County Regional Park or Spanish River Municipal Sports Complex. Both venues “open the gates” at 5:30 with fireworks expected around 9p.

South County Regional’s Facebook page will be updated should weather force a change in tonight’s event. We are in contact with City of Boca Raton as well and will update should anything change.
