September slips away quietly

A tranquil Monday is September’s parting gift to the Wichita area.

Wichita recorded 2.03 inches of rain in September. That’s slightly more than an inch below normal. Thanks to the month of monsoon weather in late July and early August, however, at 36.20 inches Wichita is still more than 9 inches above normal for the year.

Wichita hit 100 twice in the month, taking the total for 2013 to 13. There were 11 other days above 90.
