We just broke 10 inches, that's 25 centimeters of rain since the rain started June 3.

Looks like it may be a nice, wet rainy season!!

Thanks for the update, hopefully the rains will be consistent but not torrential.

Sorry, but it's off and on, not steady, and torrential. At 10:45 the hourly rainfall rate was 7.04 inches per hour.

Actually it's been steadily off and on for 10 days with today being the heaviest yet.

Are you sure that it is 7 inches/hour? Our normal annual rainfall
in the SF Bay area is about 15 inches/year, this year 5 inches!
Please send some north.

I will have to visit during the rainy season sometime.
Thanks for keeping us informed.

For a real experience, be there during a torrential rain during the “dry” season. I was there one time in January during a torrential downpour. The storm sewer system was a bit clogged. The streets were full of water with water coming over the curbs, even in those locations where the curbs were unusually high.

You are so right, every season here is wonderful. This particular "storm" has been unusual, at least for us, in that it has lasted for the better part of a week, and has often caused rain during the day.

Normal conditions, such as they are, usually have the rain ending early and the day being sunny and hot.

I hope there is a little break Tuesday or Wednesday as I am coming down to test a boat. If 7 inches per hour keeps up, I can drive it down Ixtapa Boulevard!
