Heavy Rain, High Tides Will Make For A Wet South Florida Weekend

Carmen and Don DePalma and their dog, Dee, walk in the rain as they head to lunch along the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk on Thursday.

Heavy rain from a passing tropical wave will drench South Florida over the next two days, with the impact worsened in coastal neighborhoods by the simultaneous arrival of unusually high tides.

Hit hardest will be coastal Broward and Palm Beach counties, with rainfall totals expected of three to five inches, according to the National Weather Service. But there is a chance rains could be even heavier, with the possibility of up to eight inches in some areas, the weather service said.

Worsening the impact of the rains will be high tides that will peak between 9 and 10 a.m. as well as 9 and 10 p.m.
