Summer may have sputtered at the start in Southeast New Brunswick but September certainly made up for it with lots of sunshine and warm temperatures.

Although it was mostly dry, two significant rainfall events – on the 11th and the 30th – actually pushed the monthly precipitation total well above normal.

Also notable were warm daytime highs – nine days at 27 C or higher – and mild overnight lows which led to an overall monthly temperature about 3.1 degrees above average
