WEST PALM BEACH (AP) — South Florida’s water managers say the region’s wet season has ended with slightly above-average rainfall.
Meteorologists with the South Florida Water Management District say that the region’s daily sea-breeze cycle wet-season rains ended Oct. 4.
Officials say the seasonal rainfall left water levels in good condition in many areas, which will give water managers more flexibility with the water supply during the dry season.
The dry season typically runs from mid-October through mid-May with about 18 inches of rain on average.
South Florida remains under the district’s year-round landscape irrigation rules that limit residential and commercial landscape watering to two or three days per week.
Details about watering days and times in specific areas can be found on the district’s website, click here.
