South Florida got a break Sunday from heavy rain and flooding, but forecasters say Monday will be wet again.

“The probability for rain increases Monday,” said National Weather Service Meteorologist Kris Mattarochia.

Only a week into the month, the National Weather Service said the relentless rain has placed this December as the third wettest ever with 7.67 inches of rain.

The heavy rain leftstreets in Kendall, Homestead and other communities underwater.

But by Sunday a little sun helped some of the water recede.

“It was definitely a little better,” Mattarochia said.

The rain was expected to resume Monday morning, which means flooding is still possible, Mattarochia said.

“We still have to be mindful of passing showers,” he said.

The rain chances decrease as the week goes on.
