Jim Lushine's Florida landfall/Dry May Theory
      #90376 - Wed Jun 08 2011 02:25 PM

On the topic of Jim Lushine's "Dry May for S. Florida" theory, where correlation is suggested to greater probability of S. Florida tropical system landfalls, I wondered if further study had been done to include a dry June as well.

Not only did South Florida end up with quite a dry May, but this is honestly the dryest June/latest start to our local rainy season that I can remember. Though not necessarily accepted by the Meteorological community, I think that Jim Lushine's "S. Florida Dry May theory", does have some merrit. However..... I would be especially curious to look at those South Florida landfall years, as they may/may not relate to very low precip. from the period May 15 - June 15 ( this, given the average start of our local rainy season being approx. May 15 ). If anyone has further conducted any such research based upon those dates, I would be curoius to know if any further correlation seems to occur.
