Thunder storms have rolled into my town. All of this rain this year has been strange. I'm waiting for another tornado watch.

We always have. It is usually in August, when they get thunderstorms in the southwest (So Cal and Arizona). But this storm isn't monsoonal, it is actually a *winter* type storm from the Gulf of Alaska.

I've lived in Northern California for 40 years, and cannot remember getting a storm anything like this so late in the season. Our rain typically ends in May.

Florida is called "The Sunshine State", but it rains almost daily from May until September. Talk about irony!

Yeah, that is strange. Typically, it stops raining here in mid to late May, and there is basically no rain until late September, sometimes not until November. The exception is when we get one or two days with monsoonal flow thunderstorms, and that's usually just scattered showers that last a few minutes. Getting a Gulf of Alaska storm just a couple days short of July is VERY out of character.

Dude, this is California. If L.A. gets a half inch of rain in one day, the lead story on the news is "STORM WATCH 2011!!!!"

"A storm drain was backed up on Olympic Blvd in West Los Angeles today, causing massive backups (one lane out of 3 closed) due to the storm of the year!"

Don't you remember around 92-93 it rained all the way through June? It happens but not too often. This is rare but not unusual.

yes, it seems we had Monsoon season last month
likely the same water now flooding other parts
last year was a pretty wet spring as well
and, of course, other parts of the nation are on fire, likely because we are(were?) getting all their rainfall

maybe someone needs to be sacraficed to the gods? any virgins wanna setp up?

Ok, I could have worded that better. A lot better.

Rain in June doesn't happen too often but it's not anything spooky or strange. I can remember it happening over the decades. In the 90's we had non-stop thunderstorms until July 1st one year. It's a bummer at best.

I sense you are measuring your words carefully on this one.

I would say "unusual but not impossible".

Yeah, I remember one June where the rains just kept going. We were wondering if it would ever be summer. Probably the year you mentioned.
