Say “Hello” to South Florida’s Stormy Spring Season

While the spring season in and of itself might not be Florida’s rainiest season — what could compete with hurricane season, after all? — it is still the time of year where the average volume of precipitation will start to creep upward on a monthly basis

For example, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), South Florida has been known to sometimes have nearly 10 inches of rain in the month of May alone, thereby speaking to the volatility of Florida’s weather.

Of course, you might be wondering how, then, to beat the springtime showers. Simple! All you have to do is…

Opt for an Awning

Have you ever been enjoying a leisurely afternoon outdoors, only to be surprised by a sudden onslaught of cold rain? If so, you know how it feels to have to run for cover when you least expect it.

But when you have the shelter of an awning in your own backyard, you won’t have to run very far! What’s more, if you invest in a retractable awning, your sun- and weather-resistant protection will unfurl for you at the mere press of a button.

This is all to say that an awning is an easy, efficient, and affordable way to say “No, thanks,” to springtime surprises.

Sit Back with a Screen

If you don’t mind a little cooling mist, a custom-designed screen is also an optimal option for enjoying the outdoors. After all, in the midst of a rainy day, the mesh of a screen aptly breaks up water droplets into smaller bits, causing them all to spill down the mesh as opposed to flying sideways at the whims of the wind.

Additionally, if there’s anything the residents of South Florida are likely to be familiar with, it’s sunshowers.

As the name suggests, a sunshower is when the rain moves in with surprisingly little cloud coverage, making for a simultaneously sunny and stormy period. But when the sunlight glints off the water, one might find an unwelcome glare in their eyes — the likes of which are easily deflected by a sturdy screen!
