5/16/20 – Overnight Flooding in Pompano

According to storm reports some roads in Pompano Beach were impassible or nearly impassible with heavy rain that passed trough the area between 2am and 4am this morning. Some locations reported by the NWS that had flooded roadways were:

  • McNab Road between 15th and 21st Streets
  • Palm Aire area
  • North Andrews Avenue and Copland Road
  • North Andrews Avenue and 15th Street

Radar at the time did show heavier activity in that area.

For today we will continue to have a chance for showers but nearly the amount we saw yesterday and overnight, but it will not take much to aggravate conditions in these areas with flooding. Be careful if you are out and remember, Turn Around Don’t Drown.

Current three day rainfall forecast is about a half-inch to 1.5 inches. Over SE Florida.

If you have pictures of flooding or severe weather please send them.

5/15/20 – Weekend Weather, Some Clearing After a Rainy Friday

The weekend will not be a washout but we need to get through tonight and tomorrow morning. By later tomorrow afternoon showers will diminish but we will still hold on to some showers around. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be 87°F.

Plenty of rain currently as some areas are under a Flash Flood Warning until 1245am. This is associated with a low pressure system that is expected to develop into a tropical depression or storm over the Bahamas tomorrow. We will not see any direct impacts from the system besides what we are experiencing now. The Wind Advisory we had earlier today was cancelled earlier this afternoon.

As the system moves away tomorrow evening and into Sunday our weather will improve to a more typical May Day. For that reason it will not be a wash out overall. So a split between staying in the house and the outdoors.
