After prolonged wet weather, March brings drier days

0

From the St. Johns River Water Management District 

Data collected by the St. Johns River Water Management District shows that March rainfall was below average districtwide, with a zone of very low rainfall in Lake, Marion and portions of Volusia County. A full report outlining changing hydrological conditions was presented at today’s Governing Board meeting.

March’s low rainfall followed a period of prolonged wet conditions in many areas of the district, with surface water and groundwater conditions staying in the high or normal range for this time of year.

 

  • Abnormally dry conditions in Brevard and Indian River counties remain but are less extensive. Indian River County had the lowest 12-month rainfall total, with 46 inches of rain.
  • Marion, Putnam, and Alachua counties had the highest 12-month rainfall totals, each receiving between 61 and 63 inches of rain.
  • Overall, rainfall totals from the previous 12 months remain more than 4 inches above average.
