Though the month has just begun, this December is already marked as the third wettest December in Miami’s history, according to the National Weather Service. Rainfall has reached a total 7.67 inches.
A cool front slid down across the state Thursday, December 3 then slowed and stalled right over the southern part of the state Friday and Saturday.
During that three day period, a total of 7.67 inches of rain fell. Normally a common place in the subtropics to see heavy rain, this event fell in the midst of what is known as the dry season.
This weekend downpour alone caused flooding in Kendall and Homestead, leaving many stranded.
