NEXT weather warning until Friday due to heavy rainfall, partly with heavy downpours

MIAMI – As a deep cloud of tropical moisture continues to penetrate, a NEXT Weather Warning has been issued through Friday as South Florida enters a prolonged period of heavy rain and storms.

What to expect

NEXT Weather

A flood warning is in effect for all of South Florida until Wednesday evening, but it may be extended as heavy rains are expected to continue at least until Friday.

On Tuesday, a flight ban was imposed at Miami International Airport from 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. due to thunderstorms.

“Due to severe thunderstorms in Miami-Dade, some flights at Miami International Airport have been delayed or canceled, and additional flights are expected later today,” the airport said in a statement. “Travelers are urged to confirm the status of their flight with their airline prior to arriving at MIA so they can make alternative travel arrangements from home or hotel if necessary and avoid potential congestion and inclement weather conditions at or near the airport.”

Both Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport may experience occasional ground stops and delays during the rainy season.

Rain and flooding reported in Brickell

The next four days will see breaks in the rain interspersed with periods of heavy rain. Rainfall amounts of 4 to 8 inches are expected through Saturday, with locally higher amounts possible in areas experiencing sustained, heavy rain.

Most of the tropical moisture will dissipate over the weekend, so we can expect rain chances typical for the rainy season from Sunday onwards.
