Last’s month’s weather was, well, pretty typical.

It was ever so slightly warmer than average, and a bit drier — we only got 83 per cent of the usual precipitation — but on the whole, “relatively normal.”

According to forecasters Ron Lakeman and Jesse Ellis of the Southeast Fire Centre in Castlegar, the biggest rain occurred on the night of the 3rd and the evening of the 11th, and then in the final few days of the month.

Thundershowers also occurred during the afternoon and early evening of the 11th.

It was dryer and at times clearer on the first three days and again from the 12th to the 19th. A record daily high of 24.9 degrees was set on the afternoon of the 3rd.

The first below-freezing temperature of the season occurred (–0.4) early on the 17th. More significant frost and colder temperatures (down to –4.4) followed from the 23rd to the 28th, but we received no snow.
