September's weather made it a month to remember in Environment Canada meteorologist Jim Steele's opinion.
"What a splendid month, lots of sunshine, mild conditions and pretty dry," Steele said Monday in his monthly weather synopsis.
Thanks to plentiful sunshine, the average daily high was 19.7 C, well above the normal of 16.4 C, although the average daily low, at 3.0 C, was below the normal of 3.8 C, "a casualty of the clear skies overnight," Steele said.
As a result, at 11.4 C, the mean monthly temperature was just above the normal of 10.1 C.
The warmest day was Sept. 8 when the daytime high struck 26.1 C, and the coolest was Sept. 16 with an overnight low of -2.8 C.
Looking at precipitation, it was a dry month as rainfall totaled 22.4 mm which was 43 per cent of the normal of 51.9 mm. Sept. 30 had the greatest one-day rainfall at 7.7 mm.
Total precipitation for the year to date is 353.9 mm, 79 per cent of the normal of 442.4 mm.
No records were set.
