...Heavy Rain Potential Through the Upcoming Holiday Weekend...

Broad low pressure is forecast to enter the southern Gulf of
Mexico from the Caribbean later this week. Regardless of further
development of this feature, tropical moisture will remain well
established over all of East Central Florida with the potential
for locally heavy showers and occasional storms daily through the
upcoming holiday weekend.

Many areas will see between 3 and 5 inches of rain during this
period, however locally higher amounts are possible. Several days
of localized heavy rain will lead to a continuation of flooding
potential through the weekend.

Many areas of the Treasure Coast to Lake Okeechobee are already
saturated, due to rainfall amounts of 5 to 10 inches over the past
week with some isolated areas greater than a foot since late last
week.

If the forecast rainfall continues as anticipated a Flood Watch
may be needed for portions of East Central Florida. Persons should
be prepared for the likelihood of flooding rains later this week
and into the weekend.
