WPBF 25 morning news starts now, now at 5:00. Heavy rains and tropical storms hit South Florida. Here's a live look at the first radar alert starting to move north, but the winds are turning toward the night. Most of our areas experienced heavy rainfall. This video here is from Port St. Lucie overnight. Some isolated flooding was reported across the area as well. Take a look here. This is home surveillance video. You can see how strong the winds are sending sheets of rain flying around and a little north at Jensen Beach, and the wind and rain are gusting up to 50 miles per hour. there. It's first weather warning day so you wake up here at 5:00. Our weather team has been warning you about this storm all week, and it sure was strong. From Palm Beaches to the Treasure Coast, we break down the influences in your area. Good Sunday morning. Thank you for joining us. I'm Taylor Hernandez. We have live team coverage covering all weather impacts. While you're awake, Caleb Califano is standing by to show you conditions along the coast. But first. First Warning Meteorologist Sandra Shaw and Vanessa Venent track wind and rain. But I want to start with Vanessa and good morning. We are now at marginal risk of severe weather. This means maybe 1 or 2 strong thunderstorms. This is a possibility. So, first weather warning day at least for the next couple of hours because we're watching a line very close to the front that will cross our area in the next two hours or so. Then behind that front we will definitely see some sunshine back into the mix. So, we have this low pressure system in the northern United States. And that front on the west coast of Florida, when you watch that line closely, that's going to bring some heavy rain across our area. Things are getting better there. We finally got a break from the rain. We've seen a lot of rain in the last 24 hours down into southern Palm Beach County, just a few light sprinkles that will be tracked very quickly toward the trailhead at Lake Worth and down Boca, probably in the next 10 minutes. North Palm Beach County. Just light sprinkles in Tequesta southeast of Tequesta that will be coming out very soon. Towards the Treasure Coast. Fellsmere to Port St. Lucie. Very quiet, just a few light showers north of Indian River County. Track towards the northeast as well. Very quiet now. Just very angry. We have these winds up to 30 mph near our coastal areas through the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches. We have a wind warning extended at least until 3:00 PM for the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches until 1:00 PM. So the winds will remain very gentle in the early afternoon hours, gusting up to 30 mph, and then the winds will eventually be calmer, gusting up to 20 mph later in the evening. hours. Right now in Delray Beach, we have gusty winds off shore and big waves out there. So let's continue our team's live coverage with Sandra Shaw with Coastal Influences. I got it and take a look at how high the waves actually are. Vanessa, you can imagine what all that wind energy does at 9 to 10 feet, even 11 feet just offshore of Vero Beach. And if you go further down the Gulf Stream, we have up to 15 to 18 foot seas. Over the next 12 hours, we'll have an initial weather warning until 7 a.m., another line of storms will come through, and after that, we'll see winds. So, the weather will be impactful this afternoon with some rain still possible, but mainly those gusty winds with the wind warning extended until 1:00 for Palm Beach County and 3:00 for the Treasure Coast. And then we'll go from 76 today to 56 tomorrow morning. Significant drop, more than 20 degrees. And it's all driven by this cold front. So, here you have low pressure moving across the state, here the front is coming in to receive that cold air that's settling in tomorrow, and more cold air is coming in by tomorrow night. So, we're probably looking at around the 40s on the map, Tuesday morning. So it would be quite the opposite. And we have more for you shortly. Well, Sandra, thank you. This storm is causing concern along our coast. Strong winds and large waves cause erosion and safety concerns. We have Caleb Califano live with us in Jupiter this morning. Caleb, what are the circumstances now? Well, Taylor, I can tell you what Vanessa was saying, the wind has actually died down or at least the rain has died down now, which is always good news. I was driving north from Broward County to work this morning and the rain was pretty bad. There were a lot of dangerous spots on I-95 now. This weather has changed a lot. We don't see any rain here, but we do see those strong winds. It really happened unexpectedly, you'll be standing here. I don't feel bad. And out of nowhere you'll feel these strong winds blowing close to the shore where we are now right next to the entrance here in Jupiter. As I said, we are feeling some strong winds. But at the moment there is no rain, which is always good news. But as the day goes on, we'll keep you updated. What we see and what we feel now we live on Jupiter. Caleb Califano, WPBF 25 News. Well, Caleb, thanks so much. Heavy rain created dangerous conditions on local roads around 4:00 this morning as a major crash on northbound I-95 in Martin County. Although it's too early to tell if the accident was weather related in this particular incident, as there was heavy rain falling in that area at the time, the bottom line is, though, give yourself a little extra time if you have to prepare Out the door early this morning. I also want to take a direct look at the PBIA. Good news if you're taking a flight, there are no delays, so far. Keep in mind that the storm is moving toward the East Coast and will likely have impacts on other airports.

First time back in December. There is such bad weather. Challenges in Daytona Beach. The wind was the main challenge there as well. There aren't a lot of people along the coast overnight, so as far as the beaches are concerned, erosion is a concern for a lot of people our sister stop in Orlando with the waves always being great as they pass by. Um, destruction is always bad. Um, but the corrosion is terrible. I've never in my life had this kind of storm in this kind of year that seems to be the consensus, right?
