Beneficial Rain Last Several Days Help FL Drought

Be Careful Out There On The Wet Roads, Slow Down and Avoid Hydroplaning When Driving Through Standing Water.


The traditional beginning of the Florida wet season doesn't start until the late May or so, but this past week it felt more like it got an early start. The last several days has brought numerous showers and  thunderstorms (some strong) each afternoon and evening.

Unfortunately, most of the heavy showers and storms were focused over the interior and eastern portions of the peninsula, leaving the west coast starving for more rainfall with the very dry conditions. However, the rain that did fall across the state was very beneficial in helping the drought conditions as we near the end of the dry season.

The lightning storms did help to spark a few small brushfires in Central and South Florida, but nothing that's out of control at this time. A weak frontal boundary will be clearing through the state this weekend and helping to dry things out, but could kick up the winds a little helping to spread some of the smaller fires. Nevertheless, it was great to receive some heavy rainfall the last several days… And we'll take it. Have a great weekend!
