    A line of rain storms barreled through South Florida Tuesday morning, interrupting a warm and breezy start to the morning with wind gusts and a brief heavy downpour just in time for the morning commute.

    The storms, which were expected to bring winds of 40 mph or higher, prompted the National Weather Service to call a significant weather advisory through 8:15 a.m. in parts of Miami-Dade and Broward counties. About a half of an inch of rain fell in all.

    The gloomy morning conditions are expected to clear by the afternoon as the sun returns. Temperatures are expected to remain in the high 70s to 80s for much of the day.
