The Kenora area was much drier than usual during the month of August.

We received just 12.6 millimeters of rain last month.

Peter Kimbell from Environment Canada says that’s way down from the average of 85.8 millimeters.

“That continues a trend all summer long,” points out Kimbell.

“167 millimeters for the whole summer…June, July, August and the normal is 306 millimeters.  So 55 percent of normal precipitation for the three month period, beginning on June 1st and ending in August.”

As far as temperature, August was pretty normal.

The daily mean temperature was 18.5 Celsius, which is just a shade higher than usual, which is 18.2.

Kimbell adds that September is going to start out very warm, with temperatures ranging across northwestern Ontario from 28 to 32 degrees over the Labour Day weekend.

“We’ll likely have a heat warning issued for some areas of the northwest.  So a three day period of very hot and unseasonably humid temperatures and conditions.”

Kimbell adds that things start to cool down on Tuesday of next week.
