Beneficial Rain Missed Florida's Driest Areas

May 5, 2017

Recent downpours may have helped fire fighting efforts in some sections of the state, but the drought is likely to persist for the next few weeks.  Only "near normal" rainfall is forecast through the end of May, which is typically one of the drier months of the year in Florida. Florida's rainy season kicks off in late May and early June, which is more likely when some relief to the ongoing drought will arrive.
