Dry Season Update
February's rainfall matched the typical dry season pattern in South Florida of long dry stretches punctuated by one big rain day. As a result, February was a slightly below-average month in what has been shaping up as an average dry season for the 16-county region.
The South Florida Water Management District continues to operate the regional water management system to maximize water storage for the remainder of the dry season while providing flood control during periods of localized, intense rainfall.
After an above-average wet season, South Florida transitioned to the 2013-2014 dry season in mid-October. The region historically averages about 18 inches of rainfall during this time, or less than a third of the total in a normal year. The dry season typically lasts through May.
