IT’S BEGINNING TO FEEL LIKE SUMMER!

Less rain today around Jax because of drier air in the wake of Beryl.

Everybody got rain from Beryl, but the amounts were definitely not the same. To the west of Jacksonville, more than a foot of water fell from the sky in northern Florida just south of the Georgia line. In Jacksonville, rainfall averaged 5 to 6 inches, except at the beaches where it was less than 3 inches.

The rainfall for this month has been officially just over 10 inches. The wettest May on record was 14.80 inches in 1903, although an unofficial total of 15 inches fell within 24 hours on May 20-21, 1959 into Hogans creek in downtown Jacksonville. That same amount fell on San Marco, while it caused a roof to collapse into a store on Broad Street. In some years, the summer monsoon doesn’t wait for June!
