September ends with just over two-thirds of average monthly precipitation

This year’s total is also nearly 12 times the amount we received last September, and unofficial reports indicate harvest operations in the area have still not been completed. 

That being the case, the farming community must hope for a much different October than last year, when the official precipitation total was 146.5 millimetres, including 87.3 centimetres of snow. Those totals were both more than five times the October averages.
