July followed June as south Florida's first double consecutive Big Rain Months since 2003.
Could August encore to make it a three-in-a-row?
The resounding answer is no:
August didn't even come close.
The final August tally for south Florida cam in at 5.9 inches. That could come as a surprise if you live in southwest Florida where the second half of August has been rather wet. In fact, it has -- it recorded 9.4 inches of August rain. But one corner of south Florida does not make a whole. By and large August rains slagged across much of the rest of the peninsula. Preliminary data is showing Miami-Dade only pulled in 3.3 inches of August rain for instance. That's more reminiscent of a dry season month ... but not quite yet. September is still a core rainy season month and even October is still heavily influenced by tropical rain.
