Seasonal rain deficit?

The water year is split in two in south Florida:

A summer wet and a winter dry season.

The table above provides a summary
of wet and dry season rainfall totals
over the past few years.
 

With a few days of September left and the "iffy" month of October (i.e. some years it rains other years it doesn't), this wet season is adding up to be noticeably drier than the previous two.  Leading with way is the Lower Kissimmee Basin with 37 inches. The East Caloosahatchee Basin is lowest on the totem pole with only 30 inches of wet season rainfall.  South Florida wide around 34 inches of rain have fallen.

That's about 9 inches off the past two wet seasons total.
