September is the height of hurricane season. Hurricane Hermine went up into the Big Bend area of Florida and up through Georgia. At my house in the SW corridor near the SW 200 retirement communities we got some wind and 3-4 inches of rain. Oddly enough a couple of days later we got more rain from just a heavy storm than we did Hermine.
September here in Ocala is not the beginning of fall it is a full fledged summer month with high humidity and temperatures in the 90’s. The heat and humidity doesn’t begin to go away until late October.
Remember the hot humid summers are a small price to pay for no winter.
