Weather alert: More rain expected Wednesday, throughout week

The rain is back.

South Florida got soaked Sunday. Got soaked Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday is bringing more of the same.

With lightning slashing through the skies and thunder rumbling in the morning and afternoon, life has been a bit gloomy around here.

The forecast on Wednesday calls for more of the same: a 70 percent chance of rain, with thunderstorms likely. On Thursday, the rain chance drops to 50 percent.

Forecasters expect it to be wet the rest of the week, but getting drier Friday and Saturday before storms return on Sunday.

Showers are light to heavy rain in some places, said Bob Ebaugh of the National Weather Service in Miami-Dade.

“But it is a normal pattern for September,” Ebaugh said.

Ebaugh said that the miserable weather is caused by a low pressure on the East Coast of the United States.

All the rain hasn't added up to flooded streets.

“We have no reports on flooding on streets or the system in Miami-Dade,” said Gabe Margasak, spokesman of South Florida District Water Management.

But as rain continues to fall, water managers are poised to regulate water levels in the region’s canals, he said.
