This is getting old, isn't it? I thought I moved to Orlando, not Seattle.

This is summer in Florida. Don't worry in a month or so it dries up and we see very little rain, cool nights, and lots of sunshine until about May. The time for the best weather is coming.

From late May until early October that's what the weather is like,it rains almost every day and you sweat like a pig from the heat and humidity.Around mid October you might see the first real cool front come in and cool things down a bit and from then on the daily chances of rain everyday start dropping along with the temperatures.We actually had some unexpected front that brought the humidity down a couple days ago,it was still pretty warm but you could feel the difference in humidity,today it's pretty hot and humid again.But whatever had the humidity dropping in September was definitely not normal,maybe that's a sign for a cold winter coming up.

I thought in the years past, it rained for an hour or so and then the sun came out. This year, it's been raining for, sometimes, the whole day or for most of the day which is unusual. Maybe it's because we had a drought before this and mother nature is catching up?

That is correct and this has been an unusual summer in terms of duration of the rain and time of day. I don't recall seeing it in the morning as much as we have this year, versus the typical late afternoon showers.

Yes, this has not been our normal afternoon thunder and lightning light shows. It's much more of lasting dreary drizzle, which is unusual for us. Let's see how the winter shapes up. BTW, my cousin in Alaska just posted they had their first snow today. Yes it is Alaska but she is in Anchorage where this is unusually early for snow. This could be a wild one folks.

I would agree that there's been more grey days with light rain instead of the 97 degrees at 1pm followed by the scary storms filled with lightning and thunder.However I don't really mind that as I prefer 85-88 degree days with light rain instead of the crazy heat followed by the thunderstorms.Either way I know these are not the nicest months of the year.

We're at the southern edge of the humid subtropical climate zone, which means a lot of rain in summers. IMHO, I'd rather have a lot of rain than a lot of snow.

Really you think the storms have been unusual this year? Up until a few weeks ago they came right around 5 pm on schedule down here on the south side, strong ones too with just walls of rain.

In 3 years we have been here this is very unusual for so many storms.

The year before we moved here people were posting we need rain. It is so dry and hot we need rain badly.
