Don’t act like you’re surprised.

Eastern Miami-Dade County is getting drenched again, and the National Weather Service issued a flood warning until 5:45 p.m.

As of 3:45 p.m., heavy rain led to flash flooding across portions of Miami Beach, racking up about three to five inches of the wet stuff.

Areas including Miami Beach, Port of Miami and Fisher Island are likely to experience flooding, while the rest of the region could see ponding on roads and in swales.

Meteorologists suggest drivers turn around when encountering flooded roads, which could put the vehicle and occupants in danger.

The good news? Sunshine’s on its way. After scattered showers and thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon and evening, the sun is expected to come out Thursday and through the rest of the weekend.
