This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

Wind: The strongest storms could be capable of producing wind gusts up to 50 mph.

Flooding: Torrential rainfall from showers and thunderstorms across saturated South Florida could lead to flooding, especially over Broward and Miami-Dade counties. A Flood Watch has been issued for portions of these counties.

Waterspouts: Waterspouts will be possible with any showers and storms over local South Florida waters.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will remain possible every day through this week. The strongest storms may produce gusty winds, heavy rainfall and lightning strikes. Heavy rainfall will continue to be a concern for South Florida due to slow moving showers and thunderstorms. This could lead to some flooding concerns over South Florida, as the grounds are very saturated at this time especially over Broward and Miami-Dade Counties.
