After getting drenched on Tuesday, South Florida is in for more of the same Wednesday and beyond.

While no flood advisories are planned, forecasters at the National Weather Service expect heavy rain throughout the region the rest of the week.

Rain chance is 50 to 60 percent, said meteorologist Barry Baxter. Thunderstorms could bring up to an inch of rain.

Unlike Tuesday, when two inches fell on parts of eastern Miami-Dade, no flood advisory has been issued.

Baxter attributed the soggy forecast to a “trough of low pressure” moving over South Florida.

South Floridians should keep raincoats and umbrellas close by for the rest of the week.

“We are expecting the thunderstorms to continue,” Baxter said.

Rain chance for Thursday and Friday is 60 to 70 percent chance.
