Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch, Coastal Flood Statement, Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 7:56 PM EDT May. 26, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of South Florida, including the following areas,
coastal Broward, coastal Collier, coastal Miami-Dade, coastal
Palm Beach, far South Miami-Dade, Glades, Hendry, inland
Broward, inland Collier, inland Miami-Dade, inland Palm Beach,
Mainland Monroe, Metro Broward, Metro Miami-Dade, and Metro
Palm Beach.

* Through Sunday evening

* widespread 3 to 8 inches are expected due to deep tropical
moisture streaming northward into South Florida. Locally much
higher amounts are possible. Rainfall of this magnitude may lead
to flooding.

* Grounds are nearly saturated from significant rainfall over the
past week or so, so additional rainfall will easily runoff and
lead to flooding. Flooding of canals, streets, and underpasses,
as well as other drainage areas and low-lying spots can be
expected. The hardest hit areas may see water intruding on
vulnerable structures and causing impassable travel lanes and
roadways.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.




432 PM EDT Sat may 26 2018

... High rip current risk in effect from Sunday morning through
Monday afternoon...
... Coastal flood statement in effect from 9 am to 3 PM EDT
Sunday...

* coastal flooding... subtropical storm Alberto will be moving
north across the eastern Gulf on Sunday with water levels
increasing on its wake across the southwest Florida coast. Water
levels could rise as high as 1.5-2.0 ft above mean higher high
water right along the coast. Along with that, rip current risk
will become high starting Sunday.

* Timing... for coastal flooding: late morning through mid
afternoon Sunday around the times of high tide along the coast.
For rip currents: Sunday through Monday.

* Impacts... potential for minor coastal flooding of vulnerable
locations along the Collier and Mainland Monroe coasts on
Sunday. Strong rip currents will be hazardous for those in the
surf zone along the Gulf beaches.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins, jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
signs.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don't swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help.
