The Nelson area set new weather records last month, but not for hot dry days.

  • Oct. 2, 2012 7:00 a.m.

New weather records were set for the month of September, and while residents may have predicted them for hot, dry days, the region saw new records for minimum temperatures and wind.

According to a bulletin from the Southeast Fire Centre’s Weather Services, clear skies and a dry northerly flow allowed for record daily minimum temperatures of 2.9 and 1.0 degrees during the early morning of September 11 and 12.

A record for the mean monthly wind speed was also set last month of only 4.9 km/hr.

The Weather Centre reported September’s weather was very similar to last month and September of last year where an upper ridge of high pressure dominated for dryer and warmer than normal conditions.

The average daily maximum temperature was 2.8 degrees warmer than normal while the total monthly rainfall was only 32 per cent of average.
