Lycoris and Rain

Bear in mind that a consequence of heavy and/or sustained 
rainfall generally is a drop in soil temperature.  Is it 
falling temperatures or falling rain that triggers 
flowering?  Here in SE PA I have nothing out except a few 
early Cyclamen hederifolium.  The first true harbinger of 
fall flowering is usually Colchicum macrophyllum, and that 
can be anytime from now onwards.  Todays wet falling 
temperatures may be just what we need.
