The South Florida region is experiencing yet another round of heavy rainfall, worsening the already water-logged conditions.
The area has been designated an “Impact Weather Day” due to the severe weather conditions.
The region is still recovering from the 1000-year rain event last week, which brought 25.91 inches of rainfall to Fort Lauderdale.
Severe storms and tornado warnings were reported in the Treasure Coast area last night, and this morning, Miami-Dade and Broward Metro are experiencing lightning storms.
Weather reports indicate that the rainfall rate is over two inches per hour, resulting in blinding rain that has caused flooding potential.
The ground is already saturated from previous rainfall, with more than four inches of precipitation reported in some areas.
The temperature ranges from the sixties to mid-seventies, with a forecast high of 79-82 degrees.
The heaviest rainfall is expected between noon and 3:00 pm, making it difficult to navigate the already flooded roads.
Motorists are advised to take extra precautions when driving.
