CBS News Miami has declared a NEXT Weather alert because of heavy rain and flooding that starts Wednesday afternoon and into late evening.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for Miami-Dade and Broward counties that last until 8 p.m.

There is a 70 percent chance for rain, and the high temperature is expected to reach the low 80s.

The CBS News Miami Next Weather Team is tracking an area of low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico that remains disorganized for now.

The National Hurricane Center said the disturbance has a 20 percent chance of development over the next seven days.

Regardless of development, the disturbance will eventually track across the Florida peninsula and will enhance South Florida's rain chance through the rest of the week.

Thursday and Friday will see the highest chance for rain, with widespread storms expected especially in the afternoons and evenings with the threat for heavy rain and flooding.
