After a super-soggy weekend, South Florida can look forward to seeing a bit of sunshine again.
We wont be completely without rain this is South Florida, after all. Expect afternoon showers all this week, according to the meteorologists at the National Weather Service in Miami-Dade County, but nothing like our waterlogged weekend.
The worst came on Saturday. The Sweetwater area in West Miami-Dade got nearly 6.25 inches of rain, meteorologist Andrew Kennedy said.
Miami got 3.7 inches. Most of the rest of Miami-Dade and Broward counties got between 1 and 1.5 inches.
Sunday dumped more rain, although less than the day before.
By Sunday evening, Miami and Fort Lauderdale each had recorded less than half an inch, and a flood watch was canceled.
By Monday afternoon, a cold front was expected to have moved into the region, pushing out the stormy weather although it wont cool things off noticeably, and the rain probably wont go away completely. Even with drier air, we still have a 30 percent chance of rain.
It should be more-typical afternoon thunderstorms, Kennedy said.
The high temperature for the next couple days should be about 88, with lows around a not-so-low 78.
