The end is near!

September is shaping up as the rainiest month of the wet season,

But the end of the wet season is less than two weeks away.

This bar chart shows daily rainfall totals for this current year (red) compared to the long-term daily median (blue) as calculated from 1998 to 2013 for Big Cypress National Preserve.

By wet season I mean meteorological.

Even when the daily rains stop the ground will stay wet for months to come.

And by wet season I also mean the daily peninsular shower machine.

Chance side swipes from tropical systems often boost the water table in October.

Usually always by November the water table is usually on its way down.
