Forgone conclusion?

The KBDI atmospheric drought index is climbing to the top.

Just as spring is the season that everything in the swamp (i.e. on the ground) really dry out, it's also the season when powerful winter fronts (with rain) also break through.  Two years ago we got the former and last year we got the latter (... and just in time in April).

There's still water on the ground (in the deepest holes),
but judging from this graph, southwest Florida is edging
closer and closer to spring drought mode

Which way it will turn this spring is still too early to tell.
