Monthly Average Rainfall

The graph shows rainfall recorded at Tower Hill in 2012, 2013, and up to October 19th, 2014. May marks the initiation of the rainy season and as can be noted, there was a significant increase of 268.7 mm from the month of April to the month of May for this year. June, July and August were considerably lower in comparison to the months of 2012 and 2013 resulting in dryer conditions than usual. This allowed for  more cane to be harvested until the close of the crop season on July 8; weather conditions were also very favorable for planting during these months. Rain for the month of September was well above the mean while up to October 19th, rainfall had decreased by 80.65 mm below the average.
