Guess the start of the rainy season

Recommended Posts

Pattern is definitely starting to shift back after being interrupted by the tropical storm in the Yucatan.  So much cooler this morning, loving it!

Major storms east of here last night, hail and flooding in Morelia.  Monsoon trough reestblished and shifting slowly northward.  Our chances for rain should improve tonight unless that front along the northern border and the high pressure behind it suppresses convection this far south.

.46 inch on my gauge in Ajijic Centro.  

Wow, we live a few blocks away from you and didn't see near that much.  Spotty!

At this point I expect the official start to come down to today or tomorrow.  If you look at the heavy rains east of us yesterday you could make an argument for that day.

Pattern looks pretty well established in central Mexico today.

As I look out over the lake from upper West Ajijic, it looks cloudy out over the lake. But it is not as dark as yesterday evening and it looks more like maybe no rain tonight.

Hope I am wrong. I would like a little more rain to add to yesterdays totals.

It looks like we've gone from a false start of the rainy season to having a definitely cool and dry air mass move over us and drive out all the moisture.  Looking like quite the late start of the rainy season at this point.  Monsoon trough displaced well to the south of its usual position at the start of the rains.  Bummer!

Well, Chapala would have a beach again....surrounded by brown mountains.     But I wouldn't put $$ on it being anything other than a late start.

Well since Out1 has the last date on the list, and that is today's date, I declare Out1 the winner.  It does look like the rain will finally start although the patterns are weak but improving.

Yesterday I watered my grass to keep it alive, then it started to rain about 4 hours later...☺️ (will try this trick next year)

Why not? It does seem like the rainy season now.
