When does the dry season end?
This week’s drenching rains make a case for “now.”
But as you can see from the dotted line on the above chart,
Historically speaking we are still in store for a few more dry weeks ahead.
Swamp waters traditionally bottom out in May.
Even when the summer rains arrive in earnest starting around Memorial Day it takes a good couple weeks, even the whole month of June, for them to soak into and fill up the swamp.
It’s not uncommon to have a wet week of rain (or two) in April.
Just don’t confuse it with the real wet season.
I like to think of it as a meteorologic false start.
