Amazon Flood

In the Amazon region, there are basically two seasons: a rainy season and a not-so-rainy season. In the rainy seasons, one can expect up to 60-180 inches. In the "dry" season, one can expect anywhere from 30 inches to 100 inches. Some spots along the basin average more or less than others. Generally, the north and south edges of the basin have less than the western edge.
