Flooding is concern for South Florida as rain continues to fall

A flood warning is in effect for portions of Broward County and Palm Beach County, but there is no escape from the rain throughout South Florida.

The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for northeastern Broward County and southeastern Palm Beach County until 10:45 a.m.

A flood advisory is also in effect for central Miami-Dade County and southeastern Broward County until 9 a.m.

"So now that the rain has been in South Florida for quite some time, the threat is the flooding," Local 10 News meteorologist Julie Durda said.

A flood advisory and flood watch for all of South Florida remains in effect until 8 p.m.

"There is no place in South Florida that is dry," Durda said.

The possibility for more severe weather exists later in the day, Durda said.

Local 10 News meteorologist Erika Delgado said South Florida is under a marginal risk for strong to severe thunderstorms, meaning more heavy rain, gusty winds, frequent lightning and a chance of an isolated tornado.

Delgado said rain is expected to persist for the remainder of the work week.
