5:16 pm
have more rain moving in if not some gusty showers with that rainfall. so let's's take you straight to the doppler radar and show you what's going on out thehe. so we did have one round to pushh through, the balance of that now heading out over the atlantic waters. so looking a lot better around broward county if you have to run out and get those groceries, this would be your tomb to do it. broward, by the way, official still under a flood watchful in 10:00 tonight. miami not under that flood watch but we still do have symptom rainfall in your area. stow it's not quite over around rfside as we're looking north of the city, even over toward hialeaea maybe a little rain, too, around miami shores, morth the bay village getting a little rainfall as well. here's is the the view deep south miami-dade. there's still rainfall stretching out toward the upper keys, just waiting for that back edge to push through that has been so slow to do so. but the view looking better from marathon into key west. and now we focus on what's happening on the west side of the peninsula.
5:17 pm
this band bea watching because it will be traveling eastbound. the big question is what time will it get here and how strong will it be when it starts to move into broward, miami-dade county and the keys. we still have to push the cold front through, and this band we're noticing moving in toward naples, that's closely associated with the actual cold front so there is still the chance that those showers or storms with that line could be strong. this forecast model trying to bring it through we'll say between 6:00 and 7:00 tonight, maybe a little too quick with it and maybe around 8:00 when we have passing gusty showers out there. so just be aware the that weather still is changeable tonight. buns we are settling in too to sleep tonight, the weather should be a lot of quieter, and that leads to us a northwest wind flow on friday, drier, cooler air flowing in. start, tomorrow around 60 in miami. some of yal inland may wake up to the upper 50s. highs in the lower 70s. a much have much nicer day and a
