WATER WAS COVERING THREE LANES AND TRAFFIC MOVING VERY SLOWLY.
PALM BEACH COUNTY STORM SPOTTER REPORTED THAT INDIANTOWN ROAD AT MILITARY TRAIL WAS DOWN TO ONE LANE WITH WATER
FLOWING OVER THE CURB AND INTO SOME OF THE PARKING LOTS.
We are still following a huge batch of rain in Eastern Gulf. At present speed it should not impact us tonight, but if it holds, it could impact The Keys - Dade & Broward very early Wednesday morning.
Meanwhile we are following a front across Northern Florida. Since the front is slowing down, most of the heavy rain has slowed down as well and remains to our NW. If this persists, we will have a warm and mostly dry night.
