Heavy rains are threatening to topple a century-old record in Miami even if the storm that brought them doesn’t have a name.

The system, dubbed “a potential tropical cyclone” by the National Hurricane Center, swept in from the Gulf of Mexico and is wringing itself out across south Florida on its way toward the Atlantic later Saturday. Forecasters had thought it would become Tropical Storm Alex, but larger weather patterns have torn at its structure, the center said.
