Been mostly disconnected for the past two weeks working as a camp counselor. Catch me up. What are we complaining about lately?

The complaints about summer drought are the reason why I feel that Med climates are overrated — dryness is the normal for summer in those climates.

Help me out here, you talking about the drought talk from us in the SE? It's a subtropical climate with summer months actually averaging the most rainfall. Here for instance June, July, Aug and Sept have the highest avg. precip. Maybe I'm misunderstanding your comment

Not disagreeing with you, but I wonder how much the August and especially September rainfall averages are influenced from tropical systems?

I don't personally think Sept is a wet month outside of tropical systems. Anecdotal impressions is that Sept. is mainly quick hitting FroPa, followed by dry (low humidity) days following. 2 or 3 years with normal weather leads to averages of 1"-2" of rainfall with the odd years with Tropical activity leading to a monthly total of 6"+ throwing off the averages.

Need @Lickwx to come in and correct me with the real data to pop my bubble. Lol
