Mid summer lull?

The wet season usually starts and ends fast,

But in the middle we see a lull.

The bar chart above breaks down south Florida's wet seasons from 1998 to present into three parts: (1) the start (Memorial Day to July 4th, (2) the middle (July 4th to Labor Day) and (3) the end (Labor Day to Halloween).  This year's middle has been making up lost ground for a below average start.

Not this year.  The middle (yellow) is making up ground for a slow start (green). The final third of the wet season (blue) doesn't start until Labor Day. September and October are south Florida's most tropical storm active months.
