HERE COMES THE RAIN
On the road, Homestead, FL
Heavy rain predicted
A tropical wave of low pressure is going to pass over South and Southwest Florida today and tomorrow. Significantly heavy rain, with a chance of flooding in some low lying areas is predicted. It takes a lot to flood here because the sandy soils drain so quickly.
This could be the most rain we've seen here since TS Faye in 2008. As you can see above, the system covers a wide area, from the Caribbean, across Cuba, all the way in the Gulf of Mexico.
The system is expected to depart our area early Saturday. There is a very low chance, 10%, of this system turning into a named storm.
