Dry Autumns Do Follow Dry Summers

September 4, 2012, 6:22 PM by Scot Mundt

Dry Autumns Do Follow Dry Summers

The last thing we need is a record dry autumn to follow our record dry summer.  Unfortunately, history has shown that it happens.  Four of the top ten driest summers in Sioux Falls, have been followed by top ten record dry autumns. 

Here's what I mean.  1894 is now the second driest summer behind 2012 with just over three and a half inches.  The following autumn is the fifth driest with just over an inch and a half.  In 1976, the third driest summer was followed by the six driest autumn that year.  The ninth driest summer followed by the tenth driest autumn and the tenth driest summer followed by the ninth driest autumn.

So far we are off to a good start.  With the .84" of rain last night, Sioux Falls just needs .19" more rain through the end of November to stay away from the driest autumn on record.  An inch and seventeen hundredths will keep Sioux Falls out of the top ten driest autumns.

The next thing we need is the rain to be more widespread for all of KELOLAND to enjoy.
