September's drought comes to an end thanks to beneficial rainfall. Before today's soaking rainfall, our region was slated to be the second driest month on record. Today's rainfall will end up knocking us off the top ten list. As of this evening, totals at Griffiss are over 1.6" for the month. While this means we won't set records, we're still down about 1.5" of rainfall compared to a typical September.
All of today's rain is caused by a slow moving cold front approaching from the west. Low pressure develops along the front and brings heavier rain to the region tonight. By the time all is said and done, about 1-2" of rain is possible through Wednesday morning across the region. This is more rain than we've had throughout all of September.
The weather looks to stay unsettled throughout the rest of the week. Scattered showers continue on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday thanks to a trough situated across the northeast. This weather pattern favors cooler, unsettled weather, which will continue into early next week.
