It officially entered the realm of a Big Rain Day!
|Last weekend's storm moved across south Florida|
like a stampede of wild horses!
Although you won’t find it in Webster’s Dictionary …
A Big Rain Day is technically defined as any day in which on average – across every square inch of south Florida (including the Kissimmee River Basin) – at least an inch or more of rain was recorded within a 24 hour period.
But the blustery weekend weather was more than just that.
It’s the type of rain event that helps bridge the gap between the end of the dry season and the wet season’s start. To be sure, the wet season is still a few weeks ahead so we aren’t out of wildfire season just yet. However, every little bit helps when it comes to keeping the water table up and the surface, i.e. leaf litter, drying down.
I'm just happy to see a new blue mark on the chart!
