Don’t let the mild fall temperatures fool you, winter is on the way.

September proved to be a bit warmer than usual, according to statistics released by the Southeast Fire Centre’s meteorologist, Ron Lakeman.

The average temperature for September was 1.8 degrees warmer than normal, he said.

Consistent low pressure systems last month brought heavy cloud cover, resulting in warmer evenings and a higher average temperature for the month, he said.

The hottest days of the month came early, with a high of 32.3 C on Sept. 2, over four degrees off of the record high of 36.8 C on Sept. 3, 2003.

With highs of 30 C and lows of 11 C, the warmest average temperatures of 20.3 and 20.9 were set mid-month, followed by a cold snap that brought cooler temperatures and a double dousing of rain during the last two weeks.

Normal rainfall for September is 42.6 mm but last month, 91.4 mm was recorded, making it the wettest on record since 2004, and the third wettest since local records began in 1966.

He predicted up to 10 centimetres of snow on the mountains by the end of this week.
