The storm already dumped a prodigious amount of rain on South Florida over the weekend, setting a new one-day record for the date in Key West with almost three-and-a-half inches and sparking tornado and flash-flood warnings across the region.

The heavy rainfall may come as a welcome reprieve to the drought that is now gripping parts of the U.S.as average temperatures continue to climb above normal in most parts of the country, the U.S. Drought Monitor reported.

The National Hurricane Center is focusing on a cluster of showers off the Florida coast for possible tropical development this week.
