MIAMI (AP) - The month may only be a week old, but it’s already set records in Miami-Dade County.

The National Weather Service says that through Saturday, Miami’s rainfall totals already rank as the third wettest in recorded history with a total of 7.67 inches.

The Miami Herald (https://hrld.us/1INI2F4 ) reports only the Decembers of 1929 and 1905 have been wetter.

A stalled front is behind the soggy South Florida weather.

A steady rainfall over the area on Saturday brought 2.4 inches in West Palm Beach, 4.8 inches in Fort Lauderdale, 2.9 inches in Miami and 8.5 inches in West Kendall.

The forecast calls for rain through at least Monday.
