A flood watch was in effect across south Florida Saturday, including Miami, through 8 p.m. ET.
Earlier the NWS office in Miami said between 6 and 11 inches of rain fell on some areas.
Record rainfall was recorded Saturday for the date of June 4 in West Palm Beach (which saw 4.5 inches of water), Fort Lauderdale (which saw 6.55 inches) and Miami (which recorded 5.24 inches), according to the NWS.
The storm is expected to strengthen
An earlier tropical storm warning for Florida’s east coast was discontinued Saturday evening, but a warning remained for the northwestern Bahamas and a tropical storm watch was in effect for Bermuda, the center said.
The newest track from the hurricane center shows the storm system strengthening enough to become Tropical Storm Alex within the next 12 hours, then passing north of Bermuda by Monday.
A tropical storm warning means tropical storm conditions are possible.
Airlines canceled 841 flights on Friday amid multiple storm systems, FlightAware data showed.
US airlines warned disruptions at the Florida airports would last through the weekend.
