Actually bucko, I believe this rainfall is considered normal for KM, maybe a bit on the wet side but within normal ranges. When I first came to Kunming 10 years ago, this was what it was like. What we had the last couple of years were considered drought.

@laofengzi. Yeah, air quality is great but getting splashed with sewer backflow not so great haha.

There is severe flooding in Myanmar, India, and Pakistan this year. Luckily, we are at the tail end of the monsoons. Definetely going to be more rainy for us, but so far liviable.

I lived in Kunming since 2007 while keeping a keen eye on weather paterns because of my work is directly related, paragliding.
central Yunnan is very unique in it's weather trends and can switch from a dry period to a wet period quite rapidly depending what happens in Tibet to the north.

Dali prefecture(not old town) and Lijiang can be very dry while kunming can be wet..
spring 2015 was very dry in Dali/Lijiang.
