Turns out big rains aren’t the only thing that make a wet season.
Just as important is avoiding “below average” months.

in each of south Florida’s major basins over the past year
Case in point is this wet season:
We’ve only mustered 1 Big Rain Day (BRD), i.e. a day in which 1 inch or greater on average fell across all of south Florida this summer. But we also avoided having any months that were unusually dry. Or in other words, the four core months of the wet season (June, July, August and September) did their job. That gave us four solid blue months in a row across most basins.
Way to go clouds!
