Mid summer lull?
Why July lulls the water cycle to sleep

Though still the wet season,

Rainfall typically ebbs (slightly) in July.

Monthly rainfall for Big Cypress Nat’l Preserve. Can you see the lull?

The reason?

Someone once described it to me as the lull that sets in between the last of the continent’s spring time fronts and before the tropical waves really kick in.  Over the long term that’s resulted in consistently (slightly) less rain in July than the other four core wet season months (i.e. June, August and September).

When will the wet season get its groove back?

Answer: Probably with a tropical storm. August, September and October are south Florida’s peak storm months.
