Florida is known as the Sunshine State, yet we have more thunderstorms than any other state in the country. We have approximately 100 thunderstorms per year, with an average rainfall between 40-60 inches. Our rainy season runs from May through October.
We tend to only get occasional days where it rains the entire day. It's more typical for us to get the booming afternoon thunderstorms, especially in the summer. When the storms come through they can be quite severe, but they usually pass in a relatively short amount of time.
I always love it when we have a good all day rainy day, as long as I don't have to be out driving in it. How about you, do you enjoy rainy days?
