Well, if you think it has been warm this September you are right. Obviously, this is something that we all have known this month. Here is the skinny on the September stats for a few locations:
Colorado Springs: Warmest September on record and the 8th driest on record.
Pueblo: 7th Warmest and 4th driest.
Alamosa: 4th Warmest and 38th driest.
September is usually one of our drier months. So even though we haven't seen that much precip this month there are several September's where it has either Traced or gotten .01". Doesn't matter much, it has been hot and dry and that is likely to continue for a while.
Outdoor activities weather...GREAT! Fire danger and drought...BAD! Isn't that the way it always is around here? One extreme or the other and always taking the good with the bad. That's what makes our weather and climate so interesting...
