Rainy season - Where has it gone ?

Post by Zasso Nouka » Tue Jun 13, 2017 5:55 am

Has anyone had any significant rain yet ? This time last year our land was a sea of mud and we were beginning to worry about getting trench foot yet apart from a few dribs and drabs that haven't amounted to much we aren't getting any proper rain and humidity levels haven't risen either and there is no serious rain predicted in the near future either.

So where has it all gone or even worse might we not get a rainy season this year ?

We had one day of pretty good rain, and that's it.

Constant rain here for the past 2 or 3 days, and it has been cloudy with showers every day for the last 3 weeks, except the last two Saturdays which were nice and sunny. Temperatures have been REALLY low as well, went down to 9 or 10 a few nights ago.

Looks like it last night but we've been having mostly clear blue skies with varying amounts of cloud over the last few weeks and we have needed to load up the truck with it's water tank and pump to irrigate some of the land away from our main plot where normally at this time of year it wouldn't be necessary.

Strange, given that you aren't really that far away from us in terms of the distance weather can travel that we should be having such different weather experiences.

Even weirder, Most of Western Japan has dry air warning today. East has thunderstorm warnings.

The rainy season pretty much arrived here with a vengeance this week.
The millipedes are moving out of the fields and trying to seek refuge in the house. ugh.

Just had some light misty rain that lasted no more than 30 minutes over this way, hoping for something a bit heavier tomorrow to settle the last seeding of radish in.

Constant rain here all month. It's looking a lot like last year when most of my crops were destroyed by the rain. The lack of sunlight has left most of my plants unable to grow properly. Bleh.
