Who could forget August? As much as we would like, we’ll remember it for the heat, the lack of rain and the onset of a drought.
But, all hope is not lost if our goal is to get rid of this drought before we go into the dry winter season. Because while August gave us very little rainfall at Will Rogers Airport (not even .10″), September is a fairly wet month for us as we usually average almost 4.00″ of rain, making it the 3rd wettest month of the entire year!. It’s much needed too because after September, our average monthly rainfall begins to drop sharply and won’t be this high again until next May. Fortunately, September may start off rather wet (no complaints here).
A cold front (don’t worry, it’ll be gone by Labor Day Weekend) is expected to bring us a fair amount of rain late Thursday night/Friday morning. The NAM model this morning was squeezing out as much as 2 inches of rain, while the GFS model was indicating about 1.5 inches of rain.
