MIAMI (CBSMiami) -Parts of South Florida received more than 2 inches of rain overnight and into the morning commute, snarling the drive into work while delivering much-needed rain to drought-stricken areas.

Coastal areas, South Miami-Dade, and the Keys saw the most rain. The rainfall left roads slick and caused increase commute times as drivers tried to deal with downpours.

The rain is expected to continue, off and on, through much of the day Friday, with a chance of thunderstorms possible as the day progresses.

All of this comes before the official start of the Florida rainy season, which comes later this month.

After Friday’s rain, expect a nice Mother’s Day weekend with lots of sun, with just a small chance of showers.

  1. Traffic here is horrible says:

    I hate driving here in Miami. This place has to be the worst in the world. Whenever it rains 3 drops the Palmetto turns into a parking lot. Roadwork takes 20 years to complete and more and more people are living here. Whenever I have the chance to leave I will.
