The Annual Guess Start of The Rainy Season


Recommended Posts

Back by popular demand! (OK one person mentioned it :D )

Some changes this year.

I will determine the start date based on observations of air patterns, position of Monsoon tropical boundary, reports on meteorological blogs, jet stream patterns and other.  Because of this I will not participate as a contestant.  

If this is acceptable, please note your DAY of the beginning of the rainy season.  Time is not necessary and will not be listed.  More than one person can chose the same date.

June 12th  Fair enough that you don't take part in guessing.

June 14th...the last day of the Fiesta here in SAT!!! Due to all the Banda music and celebration, Tlaloc the Aztec rain god, will reward us with a downfall just like he did in 2008, my first year living here full time!!!

I appreciate your sitting it out and using those guidelines.  We always get 1-2 heavy rains the end of May at which some think it’s an early “rainy season”.  That happened dramatically 6-8 years ago and then there was not a drop of rain the first 2 weeks of June.  It’s in the official records. That year, rainy season started June 14-17 when it always does! I’ll say June 15.

I suspect it was 2002 when I had to go back to Houston for a week. I made my wife promise she would water everything at the B&B on the Sunday when we had no gardener as it had been super hot the end of May that year. Like the wonderful wife she is, she reported she spent close to 2 hours watering. That was American Memorial Day weekend. That night it poured in Ajijic and she didn't let me forget that. Rainy season started early that year so my guess is May 31 for a repeat of 20 years ago.
