Meteorologists with the South Florida Water Management District say that the region’s daily sea-breeze cycle wet-season rains ended Oct. 4.
The rainy season in South Florida is only weeks away, but it was a dry month of April with slightly below average rainfall totals according to South Florida Water Management District experts.
It’s rare for South Florida to see any totally dry days in a row during the wet season, but that happened Saturday and Sunday for many communities.
The Everglades, one of the world’s most unique and complex ecosystems, has had its fair share of droughts over the years. But after this year’s early-season record rainfall, there is a surplus of water that officials say could potentially drown wildlife.
