Through late afternoon...scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will continue over the interior. Highest coverage will occur over the interior due to sea breeze and outflow boundary interactions. Movement is mainly toward the northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Threats continue to be locally heavy rainfall...gusty winds...and frequent lightning. Showers and isolated lightning storms have been increasing over the coastal waters this afternoon. Some of this activity will move onto the East Coast and possibly further inland. Some heavier shower activity may occur later this evening and overnight along the Treasure Coast. Tropical Storm Erika has dissipated and is now a remnant area of low pressure just north of Cuba. There is a chance that this low pressure could again strengthen to a tropical storm as it moves away from land and moves northward over the waters of the eastern Gulf in the upcoming days. As this occurs the main concern for east central Florida will be from heavy tropical rains for Sunday into Monday.

Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 4:03 PM EDT on August 29, 2015

... Flood Watch in effect through Monday evening...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of Florida and east central Florida...
   including the following in Florida... northern ... Brevard
County and southern Brevard County. In east central Florida...
coastal Volusia County... Indian River... inland Volusia
County... Martin... Northern Lake County... Okeechobee... Orange...
   Osceola... Seminole... Southern Lake County and St. Lucie.

* Through Monday evening

* deep tropical moisture over the region combined with the
tropical moisture from the remnants of Erika currently over
central Cuba will create a threat for very heavy rainfall across
east central Florida through Monday. 2 to 3 inches of rain with
locally higher amounts 3 to 5 inches are possible.

* Heavy rain may create significant flooding of streets... urban
areas... and low lying flood prone areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
