WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - South Florida’s water managers say last month was the rainiest September in 10 years.

According to the South Florida Water Management District, above-average rainfall across the 16 counties from Orlando to the Keys made September the wettest month of the rainy season so far. Rain over the Kissimmee River basins was particularly significant.

June is typically the rainy season’s wettest month.

The water management district’s meteorologists say they’re expecting the wet weather to continue in the coming days. The month of October historically brings increased tropical activity.

On average, South Florida’s wet season begins around May 20 and ends around Oct. 13. Typically, about two-thirds of the region’s annual rains fall during those 21 weeks.
