August heat fades, drought remains

Email

A hot, dry August gave way to a cooler but still dry September as drought conditions continued across the region last month.

Just over 2.1 inches of rain fell on the Red Wing area in September, boosted by a late-month rainstorm Saturday that brought an additional half inch.

The monthly rainfall total was up from the 1.6 inches of rain in August, but fell short of a 30-year average of 3.48 inches, according to National Weather Service data.
