out here that are producing gusty winds offshore. we will watch our weather coming right now from the southwest here. the southwest to the east and northeast. the bulk of the heavy rain in place across miami-dade county. there are no active watches or warnings in effect across the viewing area. en down through the keys. we've had cloudy skies, windy conditions and here's where our wet weather lies into miami-dade county and broward county. nosing back in across southern broward county. fast moving, light to moderate showers. here's the heavr band into i-75. it's wet into miami lakes, hialeah, miami springs but at least the cells keep moving. the main problem with these, gusty y nds that come down when the rains come and this will have you running your windshield wipers. give us time for these waves of showers to move by. we will see more activity develop into the afternoon hours. if you haven't seen the rain in the last hour or so across northern broward county, give it time. more showers will expand across the two county area into the

main threat will be for some wind gusts and the potential for an isolated tornado with the stngest of cells that may develop. with the rains moving in that's nuisance enough. we've ramped up the threat tracker to red this afternoon, could be some very inconvenient weatherror you into the afternoon and early evening hours. winds have been gusty out of the south, trimmed back a touch here at the top of the hour. our temperatures are suck into the 70s with the rain in place. strong your of low pressure, marching off to the east/east, dragging the showers and storms through the area. good thing i it will be a quick hitter into the afternoon hours. by`the evening we clear out and this will set us up for a nice weekend ahead after clouds maybe first thing saturday morning, saturday the choice day of the weekend because storm number two rolls in on unday. keeping an eye on the weather this afternoon, for some strong if not severe storms, 77 your high, 66 clearing out tonight, tomorrow beautiful and 80.
