Hurricane Ian is expected to make landfall on the western coast of Central Florida on Thursday, with the worst impacts expected to stay well north of South Florida.
For South Florida, we still expect plenty of heavy rainfall with flooding being a significant concern. The flooding concerns are also exacerbated by high King Tides this week, which are some of the highest tides of the year in South Florida.
There will also be the potential for a few tornadoes in the outer bands of Hurricane Ian -- especially Tuesday.
