September was cooler and wetter than the 30-year climate normal (1981-2010).
In terms of temperature, the average anomaly for the province was -1.1C below normal. The abundant precipitation was largely from two events: post-tropical storm Dorian on the 7th and a Great Lakes/tropical moisture merge on the 24th.
Climatologically speaking, August was pretty uneventful; that is, until Erin arrived at the end of the month and brought some much needed moisture to the area. Erin dumped enough moisture to push the total precipitation anomaly above average across the south, however, the north remained dry and below average (based on 30-year climatology (1981-2010)). In terms of temperature, the average anomaly for the province was normal (0.0C).
