Tornado Watch Has Been Issued For All of South Florida — No, Really
Time to bring in the lawn furniture and any cows you might have wandering around your premises.
The National Weather Service in Miami has issued a tornado watch for all of South Florida through 8 p.m. Thursday night.
This, along with a forecast of craploads of rain coming our way.
The tornado watch includes Miami-Dade, Monroe and Broward counties.
Forecasters say we'll be getting hit with heavy rain beginning in the late afternoon.
The rain is expected to not let up, with Friday's chances for rain currently at 80 percent. The rain is a result of a coming cold front that'll be making its way to South Florida.
The weather service says that we could see winds of up to 60 mph Thursday afternoon and Friday, as well as developing thunderstorms.
They also say we should be on the lookout for golf ball-sized hail, along with the inevitable flooding in areas with poor drainage.
So, find yourself a desk to crawl under, if you can.
It's gonna get cray outside any minute now.
