Flash Flood Warning Issued for Palm Beach County

It's basically the Final Days of Noah outside right now, thanks to the rain that refuses to stop falling from the sky.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for east central Palm Beach County until 4 p.m.

As of 1 this afternoon, about 2,300 FPL customers throughout Palm Beach County were without power.

There are multiple rain-related accidents being reported on I-95.

Boynton Beach, Riviera Beach and coastal areas in northern Palm Beach County are getting slammed with more than 5.5 inches of rain.

There are also reports of flights coming into West Palm Beach being diverted to Fort Lauderdale.

The National Weather Service had also issued an urban flood advisory from Boynton Beach to Lake Worth earlier in the day.

As for when the downpour will stop, it looks like the rain will let up slightly tonight, but will come back with a vengeance on Tuesday, with a 60 percent chance of hitting hard throughout the middle of the week. The rain might be with us until at least Thursday, when we will remember that the sun exists when it peaks out of the clouds and the rains subside.

Chances of rain on Friday is at 30 percent.

And we're still weeks away from Hurricane Season. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
