I guess we entered the rainy season. I like it. All the rain buckets are full and won't need to water anything for a couple weeks. So, keep raining. Luvit.

I got about 5 inches last night! Amazing how much we have been getting. I think I'll dump out all the captured rain water this weekend. I do that at least once a week to keep the mosquito from breeding in it. But, probably won't need to set them after.

The tropicals are loving it! Me to. Can't even remember last time I dragged the hose.

Melbourne received 8.19 inches of rain for the month, which was
4.90 inches above normal. This is the 3rd wettest May on record for
this site, with records dating back to 1937.

Yeah, we've been getting pounded up here.... especially hard storms the past few days.  My yard (south of St. Aug beach) has standing water in it, as do most drainage swales everywhere

The rain doesn't want to make it across the river.

When synoptic forcing is weak and storm formation trigger is entirely sea breeze dominated we are in a bit of a hole. The interior gets the best coverage where the east and west coast breezes occur. We get double dry whammy in middle Merritt Island and east Rockledge because the concave coastline creates a divergent sea breeze. Drove me crazy when I moved here and I'd see the storms from Port St. John on north. Always seemed to form around us. Well it is the shape of the coast. Have to have the synoptic pattern pin the seabreeze to the coast or blow the inland convection back to us to get rain.

It is lightning distribution but it shows where the convection happens under various flow scenarios. Panel A on page 92 is the flow pattern we've had for this mini-drought (which should be ending today or tomorrow with flow going to westerly steering instead of calm to light southerly). http://fuelberg.met.fsu.edu/pu.../lericos-fuelberg-2002

Finally got a ton of rain yesterday. Long time and really needed. My rain buckets are full again. Thanks for those links going to check them out. I live S.M.I. and I call this area the black hole. Due to watching the doppler radar and seeing no rain from Cocoa Beach to South M.I. and down to Mel Beach. Give or take a mile or two. The Black Hole phenomena is real!

Yard is getting crispy. Papayas have even kicked off a little fruit and the oaks and loquat are shedding leaves. Local NWS office keeps overcalling rain chances; e.g. call for 30, 40, 50 percent chance and realized coverage is <10 or 20. They finally dropped the forecast to 20 percent these last couple of days and even that was over-done. Local NWS office also keeps saying "temps near or slightly above climo" in their forecaster's discussion. A low temp of 79F with a dewpoint of >75F is not "near or slightly above". It is two standard deviations above. Yeah, its only 5-6 degrees. 5-6 degrees above or below the mean or median is nothing in winter but it is a big deviation from the historical record during the wet season, especially when it occurs day after day after day. Melbourne/Titusville reporting stations tied or broke record warm minimums 12 times in August. If it wasn't for that one shot of rain in late August we'd be in a jam east of I-95.

yes, missing rain. that 8/24 was the last time I've seen any. Super hot temps. Yuck for early September. Seems like Florence sucked all the moisture out the atmosphere and moved it North.

Got a good storm this afternoon about 2:30-ish, lightning & thunder, still thundering with more stuff coming in from the North.
From the looks of the ditches it was a pretty heavy rain, not a slow soaker. Not sure how much in inches because I haven't emptied the gauge in awhile.
