Our wind events came up a bit from the last couple of months. We experienced a nice 38 mph gust on the 6th in the late afternoon. This gust was the strongest so far this year.
On the other hand, the month has been rather dry. With only 0.17” of rain, we are at about 50% of annual precipitation to date (5.17"). I don't think we can catch up this late in the year. With El Niño in effect the prediction is for a warmer and drier winter here in the Northwest. To bad for me because I just got my new Wovel today and am hoping to use at least a little bit this winter. Anyway, it sounds like a continuation of our long term drought here and in the west in general.
So, another September is past. Without a doubt, we will begin to see some cooler temperatures and likely our first freeze will occur during this October.
This Saturday, Oct. 3, I plan to visit the NWS Office in Spokane for their Open House event. I'll take a few photos and post them here soon.
