...SEPTEMBER WAS SLIGHTLY COOL WITH ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION...

THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER COULD BE BROKEN DOWN INTO THIRDS...WITH THE
BEGINNING AND ENDING THIRDS WARM AND THE MIDDLE THIRD QUITE COOL.
THE RESULT WAS SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL AVERAGE TEMPERATURES WITH ABOVE
NORMAL MONTHLY PRECIPITATION.

THE MONTH BEGAN QUITE WARM WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES NEAR OR ABOVE 80
ON THE FIRST FOUR DAYS AND A HIGH OF 90 ON THE 5TH BEFORE A STRONG
COLD FRONT SWEPT THROUGH THE AREA. THIS FRONT BROUGHT SEVERAL INCHES
OF BENEFICIAL RAINFALL TO THE REGION BUT FORT WAYNE AIRPORT RECORDED
JUST UNDER ONE HALF INCH. SEVERE WEATHER ALSO OCCURRED WITH
THUNDERSTORMS PRODUCING LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS IN A FEW
LOCATIONS.

THIS FIRST COLD FRONT DROPPED TEMPERATURES BACK INTO THE 70S AND
NEAR NORMAL FOR EARLY SEPTEMBER BUT A SECOND COLD FRONT ALONG WITH
REMNANT MOISTURE FROM PACIFIC HURRICANE NORBERT BROUGHT MORE HEAVY
RAINFALL TO THE AREA ON SEPTEMBER 10TH. FORT WAYNE AIRPORT RECORDED
3.24 INCHES OF RAIN WITH THIS SYSTEM...A DAILY RECORD RAINFALL FOR
THIS DATE. TEMPERATURES BEHIND THIS FRONT DROPPED WELL BELOW NORMAL FOR
THE MIDDLE PORTION OF THE MONTH. AVERAGE DAILY TEMPERATURES BETWEEN
THE 11TH AND 23RD OF SEPTEMBER WERE BELOW NORMAL EACH DAY EXCEPT FOR
THE 20TH. TEMPERATURES WERE AS MUCH AS 12 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL ON
THE 13TH AND 15TH. LOW TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE 40S EACH MORNING DURING
THIS STRETCH.

TEMPERATURES MODERATED BRIEFLY ON THE 20TH WITH HIGHS BACK AROUND 80
AHEAD OF ANOTHER STRONG COLD FRONT. THIS FRONT BROUGHT RAIN AND
SEVERE WEATHER BACK TO THE REGION DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON HOURS ON
THE 20TH. MANY AREAS EXPERIENCED WIND DAMAGE AND HEAVY RAINFALL FROM
A LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS THAT MOVED THROUGH AHEAD OF THE MAIN COLD
FRONT. THE COOLER WEATHER BEHIND THIS FRONT WAS BRIEF AS MILD AND
DRY WEATHER RETURNED TO END THE MONTH.

THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE WAS 62.5 DEGREES...1.8 DEGREES BELOW
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE T-21ST COOLEST SEPTEMBER SINCE 1912. THE
HIGHEST TEMPERATURE WAS 90 ON THE 5TH AND THE COOLEST WAS 41 ON THE
23RD. TOTAL PRECIPITATION WAS 4.90 INCHES...2.10 INCHES ABOVE
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 11TH WETTEST SEPTEMBER ON RECORD. THE
GREATEST 24 HOUR RAINFALL WAS 3.24 INCHES ON THE 10TH...A DAILY
RECORD. A TOTAL OF 10 DAYS IN SEPTEMBER HAD MEASURABLE PRECIPITATION
AND TWO OF THESE DAYS HAD GREATER THAN ONE HALF INCH OF RAINFALL.
