..HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL CONTINUES THROUGH THE WEEKEND ACROSS SOUTH FLORIDA...  
 
A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL REMAIN OVER THE GULF OF MEXICO THIS  
WEEKEND ALLOWING FOR TROPICAL MOISTURE TO CONTINUE TO WORK INTO  
THE REGION FROM THE SOUTH SOUTHEAST, WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY  
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE WEEKEND. MOST AREAS WILL  
SEE BETWEEN 3 AND 5 INCHES OF RAIN DURING THIS PERIOD, BUT  
LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS ARE POSSIBLE. DESPITE ONGOING DROUGHT  
CONDITIONS, SEVERAL PERIODS OF HEAVY RAIN MAY LEAD TO LOCAL  
FLOODING CONCERNS THROUGH THE WEEKEND.  
 
THE GROUNDS IN PALM BEACH AND BROWARD COUNTIES IS STARTING TO  
BECOME SATURATED, DUE TO THE RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 4 TO 7 INCHES  
WITH SOME ISOLATED AREAS SEEING UP TO 10 INCHES THAT HAS ALREADY  
FALLEN SINCE EARLY LAST WEEKEND. IF THE FORECAST RAINFALL  
CONTINUES TO PAN OUT IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS, THEN A FLOOD WATCH MAY  
BE NEEDED FOR PORTIONS OF THE EASTERN SOUTH FLORIDA FOR THIS  
WEEKEND. AT THIS TIME, THERE IS ALSO A MARGINAL RISK OF FLOODING  
ACROSS ALL OF SOUTH FLORIDA SATURDAY AND SUNDAY FROM THE WEATHER  
PREDICTION CENTER (WPC).
