September was an odd September. 25 of the days had above average temperatures and we ended the month 5.1 degrees above average. On two days, we hit 100+. On September 10th, we officially hit 101, but the Jonesboro thermometer was running a little warmer (2-4 degrees) warmer than everyone else.
It was a rather dry September. We ended the month with 1.28" of rainfall. This was 1.78" BELOW average. The wettest day was September 20th with 0.95" of rainfall.
In summary, it was a drier and hotter September than on average. Fortunately, we do not use the Farmers Almanac, because it showed the opposite. Here is what it showed for The Region from Arkansas to the Gulf Coast. We would be considered "north" in this region:
Have a great day!
