Summer drought?

Here’s a look at how June and July rainfall totals.

District wide summer rains have been below normal …

Except for the Kissimmee River and Lake Okeechobee.

This is our slowest start to the wet season since 2004.

But don’t call it over just yet:

August and September of 2004 combined for 21 inches.

(That made up for lost water in a hurry.)

Usually the shift from the dry season into the wet is easy to discern.

This year it’s a muddled view of when one starts and the other ends.

I like the “weekly” rainfall graph (above) because you can see the seasonal patterns better (than monthly) and also pick out the major rain makers.
