In Florida, rain does not fall uniformly throughout the year, but is split into a distinct wet season (June – October) and dry season (November – May). The result of this seasonal disparity in rainfall is evident as an annual oscillation in lake and groundwater levels. Under typical weather patterns, lake levels fluctuate within a normal range. Our lake is actually a very large water retention system fed by ground water, rain, and rain runoff.
The wet season produces the vast majority of the region’s average annual rainfall, approximately 60 inches. Temperatures often reach into the 90s and humidity levels are high. With sea-breeze fronts developing along both the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, thunderstorms can occur almost daily during the summer months.
Not to worry, once the wet season starts back up again in June your lake levels will return to a normal level.
