Or should I say withers.
South Florida wide rainfalls have only totaled about 13 inches.
That's about half of the normal 21 inches for August midpoint of the rainy season.
Keep in mind the peninuslar total has been boosted by more plentiful rains in Naples and Ft Myers. For places in the Everglades and East coast their total summer accumulation is comparable to what some year's they receive in a month (see below.)
