September Review

September turned out to be above normal in precipitation which broke our seven month stretch of below normal precipitation. I have to note though, that since I do not have a rain collector heater, the amount of precipitation collected during the winter months is likely less than what actually fell. Okay, with that said, September was 0.80" above normal in precipitation. We had one good storm on September 8 when 1.19" fell in a 24 hour period. The storm lasted three days with a 72 hour total of 2.53" on September 7, 8, and 9. There were only six days of precipitation during the month.

September ended up being above normal in temperature too. The beginning of the month was quite hot with a reading of 94.7 on the 4th. There were three days of 90 or above. For the month, we were 3.3 degrees above normal.
