Miami Herald Staff ReportJune 6, 2013 

The National Weather Service lifted a tornado watch for South Florida Thursday evening, but an urban flood advisory remained in effect for Miami-Dade until 8:30 p.m.

The flood advisory is issued for portions of Miami-Dade including Homestead, South Miami, Miami Beach, Miami, Key Biscayne, Kendall and Coral Gables.

During the early morning hours, Miami-Dade was under a tornado warning, with a severe storm passing over the west-central portion of the county.

Thursday was a wet day, with roads slick from a steady rain.

“What a mess across South Florida,” CBS4 meteorologist Lissette Gonzalez said on her Facebook page. “Roads are drenched and dangerous and we have widespread storms soaking most of Broward and Miami-Dade.”

The National Weather Service forecast calls for a 60 percent chance of rain with mostly cloudy skies. The high will be in the mid-80s and the lows in the mid- to upper-70s.
