National Weather Service official reporting station closest to Yelm
Today will mark one of the driest Septembers on-record!
The trace of rain recorded for September at the National Weather Service at Olympia Regional Airport with the dry August is giving this area the driest summer and early Fall, ever.
The “burn-ban” is set to end October 16, however may have to be extended since long-range weather models show NO rain is forecast at least through October 10.
UPDATE: October 1
From Susan Wyatt at KING-5 TV News:
“No significant rainfall in sight for the next 10 days”
“KING 5 Meteorologist Jim Guy says at Sea-Tac, the September rainfall was .03 inches. Normal rainfall for the month is 1.50 inches.
‘This ties the record for the third-driest September,’ said Guy.”
