Another day of wet weather in South Florida caused all sorts of problems Tuesday, including flooding and strong winds.

In Fort Lauderdale, a woman was rescued after her car stalled over flood waters in the middle of the roadway.

A home in Oakland Park caught on fire after it was possibly struck by lightning. The family inside was uninjured, and firefighters put out the flames.

And in Lauderhill, strong winds toppled a tree into a building. No one was injured.

The National Weather Service issued flash flood warnings and flood advisories for parts of Broward and Miami-Dade, as storms once again swept through South Florida.

Showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast through mid-week before a drier pattern arrives by the weekend. 

Through Thursday, in the wake of two consecutive days of locally heavy rainfall, any concentrated showers or thunderstorms may trigger areas of isolated flooding.
