The 3 Weather Zones of FLA

Florida has three distinct weather zones - North, Central and South. North - FL-GA state line to Ocala, Central - The Villages to Lake Okeechobee and South - everything south. The Gulf has a huge effect on the central sections weather. When prevailing winds are from the west this sets up the predictable summer monsoon. The north is affected by the large land mass to the north and west with the expected class of warm and moist with dry at Jacksonville most afternoons. The south is basically the Caribbean and will be the first to get storms and flow from the east. I've lived her most of life and the "old-timers" always told me that the FL weather cycle is about 40 years long (give or take 2 or 3 years). This is the pattern I remember from about 40 years ago - rain, rain, rain and a hurricane (David) in Central Florida.

South Florida rain

I was born & raised here and my Mother before me. I remember in the mid and late 60's you could set your watch by the daily afternoon rain storms
And when it changed and they didn't come it was sad. It had gaven relief from the heat. In '83 I bought a snack bar on a golf course. That winter it rained (every day) all day the whole winter. My only customers were workers. In early 70's we had a Christmas hitting 98. The red melted off the
candy canes on the tree. In '77 we had snow one day early a.m. Early 80's we had a Christmas it was a low of 28 in the daytime. My Mother and her family wintered here every year. Some winters they went swimming in January and some winters they had to light the turpentine heaters against bitter cold It is weather. I remember the same type of changes throughout the country. So sorry people are unhappy bur that is weather.
have to take the bad with the good. All good wishes!!!

florida weather

depends where you live in florida.january-april had wonderfull cold nights.was 22 in april.than bam it was 80'.west central fl.has completely different weather than say south florida.
have lived here off and on for 50 yrs and the last ten or so its been very dry.normal is drenching rain daily in june and july.we are not out of the drought.flooding doesn't mean you have had "enough" rain just that it came too fast and crappy drainage.
florida is massivelly overpopulated and overbuilt.the power plants cant keep up and are falling apart.the watertable is disappearing.resources in general are being depleted.

Far far the worst year in

Far far the worst year in Florida everyday rain rain rain been here for 28 years and moving back to the North East this year thank God

Wet Wet Wet

We have lived in Florida going on 7 years and this years is by far the wettest year ever. It has rained non-stop since the end of April and we have had 2 days that are dry and are predicted for rain for every day at 60% or higher for every single day until Oct. 2018. There are 2 other days in August with 3% rain. This is definitely, not the norm for our area. At this point here in sunny Florida it can no longer be called that. So where on earth is the Farmers Almanac even close to the truth in saying that we are below normal or normal Precipitation? I used to rely on this but NO LONGER, you are so far off it isn't even funny. Lets at least get close, like you use to be.

Rain in Florida

Have lived in FL for 35 years. Rainy season is pretty predictable - every day, approx. 3:00 p.m, amazing lightning storms. Weather gurus have rarely said we have enough rain (referring to forecasters on TV).

Think you got the drier than

Think you got the drier than normal part wrong its rained all day every day for over two weeks now

Drier than what?

It has rained every day for the last 10 days and it looks like it will be for the next 10 days. Now I am no meteorologist nor do I play one on TV. But nearly 20 days of rain, I do not believe it is drier than normal

Dry?

It has rained everyday and now we’re flooded, if that dry I would hate to see wet

I forgot what rain is,

I forgot what rain is, Phoenix hasn't had any since last year
