Flooding could be a problem Tuesday and possibly into Wednesday, as rain continued to drench parts of South Florida, according to the Weather Service.

A flood advisory was extended into the afternoon Tuesday, now expected to expire at 3:15 p.m. for most of Miami-Dade and South Central Broward.

“Because the ground is saturated any rain could cause potential flooding,” said Bob Ebaugh, a weather specialist.

A flood advisory was issued at 9 a.m. Tuesday morning after about two inches of rain fell in about an hour in parts of Coral Gables and Little Havana.

National Weather Service meteorologist Kris Matta said it was expected to rain on-and-off throughout the day.

"There will probably be a quick break and then redevelopment," he said.

The wet weather can be blamed on disturbances moving from the Gulf of Mexico. Another system is expected to drench South Florida Wednesday as well.

“The sun may break out from time to time, but it’s going to be mostly cloudy,” Matta said.
