September temperatures were near normal  (+0.2 C) in comparison with the 30-year climate normal (1981-2010) for the province.  Precipitation in September continued to be on the dry side with 69 % of the 30-year climate normal.  We have yet to see a month in 2020 with above normal precipitation and the last time this happened was December 2019.

See all the details in the attached final report for September and an outlook for October 2020, from Jill Maepea, Warning Preparedness Meteorologist / Client Service Operations Atlantic, Environment and Climate Change Canada / Government of Canada
