Mother Nature doesn’t deserve a Mother’s Day brunch — unless you really think South Florida needs a soaking.
Like it or not, we’re in for widespread showers and thunderstorms this weekend, with above normal rain chances continuing through at least early next week, according to the National Weather Service.
How above normal?

According to the NWS, several periods of heavy rainfall may be possible, especially late Saturday night through Sunday due to a tropical system churning nasty weather in the Caribbean. The area of low pressure is expected to develop in the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday.
“Despite ongoing drought conditions, this may lead to local flooding concerns late this weekend into next week.”
