SEPTEMBER WAS COOLER AND WETTER THAN NORMAL. HOWEVER, THE FIRST WEEK
OF THE MONTH BEGAN WARMER THAN NORMAL WITH HIGHS IN THE UPPER 80S
AND 90S WHILE THE LAST FEW DAYS OF THE MONTH HAD HIGHS IN THE 50S TO
60. A SERIES OF FRONTS MOVED ACROSS THE STATE DURING THE MONTH WITH
FALL-LIKE WEATHER BEHIND THESE COLD FRONTS.

THIS WAS THE TENTH WETTEST SEPTEMBER ON RECORD OUT OF 109 YEARS AND
ON TWO DAYS THERE WAS MORE THAN ONE-HALF INCH OF RAIN. THERE WERE
FOUR DAYS WITH THUNDERSTORMS AND THE MOST NOTABLE THUNDERSTORM
OCCURRED ON THE EVENING OF THE 18TH. THIS STORM BROUGHT BRIEF
TORRENTIAL RAIN, SMALL HAIL COVERING THE GROUND, AND STRONG WINDS.
