About 20 inches of rain has fallen since the start of June.
Do you remember 2005 when 20 inches of rain fell in June alone, … some stations recorded close to 30 inches?
June, July, August, and September are our 4 core wet season months: each averaging between 8 and 10 inches.
Tropical rains can also fall in October, essentially extending the depth and duration that water stays in the wetlands … but those storms are hit and miss from year to year. The preserve’s long-term average for October is only 4 inches.
And after October, from November to April, its back to 2 inches per month.
