STORMS

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Local - Con­tin­ued from Page 1B

ol­o­gist An­drew Hagen said.

“If you get 2 inches spread out over a cou­ple of hours it’s not so bad,” he said. “But if you get 2 inches in one hour, that’s when we start see­ing sig­nif­i­cant pond­ing of water, es­pe­cially in low-ly­ing ar­eas.”

A flood ad­vi­sory was in ef­fect at 1 p.m. for Key Bis­cayne, south Mi­ami Beach and down­town Mi­ami.

“If you get 3 inches of rain in an hour then that can make some ar­eas im­pass­able,” he said.

The down­pours may re­duce vis­i­bil­ity and cause the pond­ing of water on area roads. Mo­torists should slow down, use low beam head­lights, and al­low ex­tra time to reach their des­ti­na­tion, fore­cast­ers said.

Tem­per­a­tures are ex­pected to reach the high 80s and low 90s in some ar­eas, but the heat in­dex will make it feel like 105.

We can also ex­pect scat­tered show­ers and storms through Wed­nes­day, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional Weather Ser­vice.
