Everybody's been pounding down my door about this year's wet season's total.
Okay, I'll admit:
Politely knocking is closer to the truth.
Keep in mind (1) we still have a solid three weeks of "core" wet season left and (2) I don't close the door on counting wet season rain drops until the end of October. Technically, the dry season has already started by then, but for mathe-meteorological convenience I lump all of October (just as I do all of May) as summer rain. As of today, south Florida's totaled 35 inches. That's just two inches below the 37 inch long-term average. But wet season rain is not all about rote totals:
Timing is essential, too.

It's those late wet season Big Rain Days ...
That delay the start of the dry season clock.
