Rainy Season

Well we are on the cusp between the mid-year dry and fall rainy seasons. The fall rains generally increase slowly after mid-September and are in full swing in October and November. By mid-December they have pretty much stopped and the early dry season begins. The term “dry season” is relative as we do get some rain during these periods.

IDEAM, the national weather bureau is expecting slightly lower than average rains over much of the country due to the developing El Niño conditions. This would be welcome around here as last years La Niña brought excessive rain with lots of flooding.

Right now we have a good thunder bumper cranking up. These are very common between about 1500 and 1700.
