Wet (not monsoon) season has begun!

Looks like our summer rains have started ...

Just don't call them monsoons.

Monsoonal rains have a different
mechanism that south Florida's typical
wet season pattern

Every once in a blue moon I hear somebody call them that.

Even if technically they are not.


The distinction isn't quantity either: Yes, the monsoons of India beat south Florida's summer wet season total, but the celebrated monsoons of the American Southwest are a pittance in comparison at best.
