July lull (draws to an end)

Though still the wet season,

Rainfall typically ebbs (slightly) in July.

Rain chart showing weekly, monthly and water year rain totals for Big Cypress National Preserve.  Can you see in the middle chart how the long term median rain total for the month of July is lower than the other wet season months?

The reason?

Someone once described it to me as the lull that sets in between the last of the continent's spring time fronts and before the tropical waves really kick in.  Over the long term that's resulted in consistently (slightly) less rain in July than the other four core wet season months (i.e. June, August and September).


Based on the rainy end to July and start of August,

It looks like the July lull is done.
