It is yet another hot, sticky and rainy day in South Florida.

As Tropical Storm Bret continues to travel away from Florida at 7 miles per hour, less rain is expected Tuesday.

During the afternoon and as the evening draws closer, there is a 40 to 50 percent chance of rain, according to the National Weather Service in Miami.

A northwest wind flow will steer the storms toward the Everglades and the metro areas of Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

Temperatures will remain in the upper-80s in the coastal areas and in the mid-90s inland.

The daily rainfall during the first week of July has slightly helped South Florida drought conditions. Miami-Dade and Broward counties have slowly improved from exceptional to severe drought conditions, the National Weather Service reported.

July showers and thunderstorms have amounted to an average range of one to three inches, reaching up to six inches in certain South Florida areas.
